Standard suspension in 996 GT3


Recommended Posts

What is the standard Porsche OE suspension on the GT3? I own a 996 C2 Coupe with X51 package. Currently running Bilstein PSS10s with GT3 sway bars, but can't seem to get the Bilstein package adjusted to my tastes. Live in the midwest where the roads are full of asphalt patching from every winter's potholes. Smooth roads it's great, bad roads and washboard sections of regional tracks it tends to porpoise and lose compliance in rough sections. Thanks.

Hi X51..... I'm not sure exactly what you are asking for, but, here's some info. Let us know if you want more.

The stock GT3 MKII suspension is different from the stock C2 parts. It's height adjustable coil-overs. The springs are H&R. The front lower control arms are split at the inner ends to accomodate spacers such that additional negative camber can be had beyond what can be done at the front strut tops. The rear lower control arms are not split (but the GT3 RS ones are). The dampers are not adjustable. The ride height is about 30mm lower than the C2.

Let us know what else you want.

That's great information and much appreciated. That tells me what I needed to know. Thanks.
