996 GT3 OEM Springs question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a newbie considering buying a used '04 996 GT3. I found one where the owner had supposedly replaced the stock OEM springs (these were in the trunk of the car) with softer Porsche springs that maintain the ride height.

1) Wanted to confirm the springs I saw were actual OEM GT3 springs:

Red colored "H&R E/K" Springs with part numbers:

996 333 531 95

996 343 531 95

2) Does Porsche make softer springs for the GT3? Any part numbers?

Thanks for any help on this.

BTW, the owner of the car still has the OEM springs, so if I move forward, probably a good idea to put those back in the car.

I was able to verify that those numbers are in fact OEM springs with a couple of parts departments.

The parts departments also told me that Porsche also produces another spring for the fronts:

Probably designated "Street" (unclear from a couple dealers)

996 343 531 97 504


The dealers couldn't confirm if these were stiffer or softer. The dealers did not find an alternative spring for the rears, so I'm really curious as to springs the previous owner had put into his GT3?!?!

I'll see what I can find out...
