Oh no, not another PSS9 question!

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I just bought myself a set of new-old-stock PSS9's for my 996 C2.

I've read all the PSS9 Threads searched on this forum, but I still have a question, and it concerns the rear shock.

I hope someone will be able to shed some light on this.

On the rear shock, covered by the blue plastic boot/covering, is a black rubber bump stop. Above this is a washer. The washer is similar to those usually used above and below strut mounts. Is it called a cone washer? concave washer?

Anyway, this washer is not held down by anything, it just sits there free to move. I find it very strange, as I am very sure it would rattle like crazy when the car is running.

I have attached a picture of it for you guys to see.

You are correct, the washer will rattle. I installed pss9’s and stopped the rattling by sliding/pushing the black bump stop all the way up so that it held the washer against the top mount.

Sounds like a good idea.

Thanks for the input, at least now I know that the washer is supposed to be there, and not an error on my set.

What about using some contact adhesive to glue the washer to the bump stop. That might prevent it from rattling.

What do you think?
