Raising a lowered 997 back to stock...


Recommended Posts

New to Renntech but ahead thanks for any info!

Looking into getting a 997. The one I'm interested in is pretty much dropped to the floor. Well done, no camber. But, since I'll be using this car more for function on the streets rather than style sadly, I kinda wanted it back close to stock height (or maybe just a tad lower than stock).

1. Should I source out aftermarket springs and shocks or go back to the dealer and order OEM. I want a good ride to get me thru the daily potholes.

2. If aftermarket, what brand do you guys recommend for the 997?

3. Anyone know of a good post/link to how to lower a 997? That way I can reverse engineer how to raise my 997?

Much appreciated...

Can't help you on a 997 but I did the same thing on a 996. My assumption was that most, if not all, aftermarket springs are going to offer some level of lowering. Looks great, for me, terrible daily ride on rough roads. I decided to buy M030 springs (Porsche sport suspension). Car rides very reasonably now and I don't give up that much on cornering. Look is okay but something you will have to live with.

With or without PASM?

Porsche (unlike many manufacturers) sells tuned kits. These kits include springs, shocks, bumper stops and swaybars. So what you get is a predictable handling car. Changing just one or two components can sometimes make a car handle erratically or unsafely. For my money I would stick with Porsche on this one.

You could also use coilovers like Porsche uses on their race cars and lower or raise the height as needed. The "normal" ride height for coilovers (on their highest setting) will still a little lower than stock.

I have my '06 C2 equipped with Bilstein SP shocks, combined with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. I love the look, and love the handeling, but REGRET it big time! Car is WAY to harsh, and here in Holland we have speed bumps everywhere! So i'm gonna bring it back to the dealer soon, to put the stock set back on the car.
