Hello I recently picked up a used 2007 non S 911. I would like to put in a

different suspension kit. The car does not have PASM. Does anyone know if it's still possible to

install an adjustable kit? I've seen kits that require adjustment through the struts but I like the idea

of changing on the fly from inside the car. It's my daily commuter and the occasional track day. Any insight

would be greatly appreciated,

Mike

The expensive JRZ shocks work off the computer.

A rear sway bar is easy to install and helps alot.

All you really nbeed to do is replace the 19mm rear sway bar with a 24mm.

Thanks guys...by swaping out the rear sway bar...is it a noticible difference? By replacing the rear would I need to make any adjustments to the front to balance it out?

The 911 with a rear weight bias oversteers by nature. Porsche has spent many years in taming this tendency. The basic 3.6 C2 with standard transmission and standard shocks will undesteer off the showroom floor. So, without spending a fortune, the easiest fix to more it toward a neutrial attitude is substitution of a larger rear sway bar followed by a good four wheel alignment. This should satisfy the average weekend track guy. I have heard from people who have done only this and dropped 2-3 seconds off their lap times! For what it is worth.

Why are you so sure you need stiff sport suspension for a daily driver car? I would do first proper alignment: -1 degree camber in front (max you can get with stock), -1.5 in rear, toe front degress .02, rear degress .14. That will almost eliminate understeer on street conditions.

For serious auto-x you would need to have more camber in front - will need GT3 LCAs to be installed (up to -3 degrees front camber) and adjustable sway bars. But still can drive on stock shocks. And then if you track car seriously - next step it to put limited differential and then you can go with stiff suspension - essentially most people have PSS9, PSS10 or KW v3 coilovers to choose from.

All that is subjective to some degree, my only point is that it is probably not right to underestimate potential of stock 911 suspension. It is more than capable and replacing it on a DD car may not necessarily do a good thing, you need to be quite sure what is it you want or attempt to fix with this swap.
