Stock Shocks 1999 Coupe

Recommended Posts

More beginner questions:

My new to me '99 feels like the shocks are not doing their job. On 993s, stock shocks are at the end of their life after about 30,000 miles. My '99 has 64,000 miles. How long are the stock shocks lasting on 996es?

Thanks in advance,

Hey Hank. Please tell me you still have my old Speed Yellow 993???? :) How did the RS conversion go?

As for shocks being the same as the 993's and wearing out quickly, the opinions are mixed. My car has the M030 and 33k miles. I'm probably going to swap them out at 40k.

So hows everything back east with racing?

I do still have the RS Clone. I have replaced almost every single part of the car. It is really a neat machine. I actually drove it today at a test session at Roebling Road. I think you'd like it. I am enjoying the 996. It is a great car. I want to be careful not to compromise its great streetability by bolting on race parts. I think I want to put a Euro M030 suspension and a GT3 aerokit. I like the center radiator DIY too.
