Pasm Suspension System !

Recommended Posts

Hi, dear all ... clapping.gif

I have owned the 986 for some years, since it is a 10 year old car, I have change the suspension at the Dealer Workshop.

Just wondering on the new PASM suspension system on the newer posche line-up, how is the maintenance ? Do those new PASM need special maintenance, do they have the life-span period ?

Like the Air-matic suspension in Benz, it is best to maintenance or change on every 100,000 KM.

Is it as easy as the older model, just change the suspension to OEM, or aftermarket like H&R, KW or Blistein & etc ...

Thank you for your kind input, was thinking of sell off my old boxster, & get my-self a Cayman !!!

PASM has undergone a number of revisions since first introduction. The part number suffix on the PASM damper has progressed from 04 to 20 suggsting 16 revisions. Having recently replaced the rear PASM dampers on my own car (987S boxster 2004) due to an annoying rattle and poor damping, I can confirm the newer dampers are much less harsh in sport mode than original. I've also driven a cayman gen 2 with similar 19" wheels to my own car , but with standard suspension and found the ride quality over broken tarmac to be comparable to my PASM equipped car in normal mode. If you prefer the handling of your car to be progressive I would suggest the standard suspension would be better , as the PASM has no fewer than 5 settings in each mode , which constantly adjust under load and speed.
