Can I use this suspension

Recommended Posts

I searched but couldn't find any info on this.

Can I use stock 2003 GT2 Coilovers on my 99' C2?

If so what do you think I would get out of it?

I suspect:

1. much lower

2. stiffer

To get full benefit I would need to change sways I guess. Would it be mandatory to get them on though? Or can this be done after?

The 04 GT2 uses the same exact susp and the 04 GT3. I have an 04 GT3 susp in my 1999 C2. Extensive write up on RL under gt3 suspension w/ user ID Paul 996.

The earlier GT2 susp while it will fit isn't as desirable as the GT3 based units. They are much softer and not much of an upgrade, you are better off with an x73 unit. The main benefit of the 04+ GT3 susp is the monoball front upper strut mount which has two settings (one for much more negative camber if you are so inclined)

Basically these just bolt right in, ignore the ill informed posts of having to change your wheel carriers and uprights. Same is true of any 2 wheel drive based car (interchangeable) Cheers! :)
