Hello everyone,

I want to install a rear strut brace on my 2002 Porsche 996 C2.

Can anyone give me some help please?


Why? might I ask...

Short of going to a full weld-in roll-cage, with pickups at

the suspension points, I'm not sure there is any

real benefit to the typical "strut brace" here.

The 911 monocoque chassis is pretty stiff, and rear

multi-link suspension practically eliminates the need

for such an add-on - rear shocks do connect vertical

loads to the chassis, but lateral stresses are handled by

the subframe and upper links.

The typical performance upgrade is to replace the

(rubber bushing) stock toe and upper links with

spherical links ("dog bones"). However, I believe this

is really only suitable for track use - Porsche designed

in the mechanical compliance to provide a stabilizing

rear toe-steer effect under lateral loading, and provide

some compliance for ride comfort. So buyer beware,

if you choose to go this route!

If you still want to, check out GMG Racing, etc. They have

the shiny racecar spherical-jointed links that so many

find sexy.
