suspension mods on a budget

Recommended Posts

I've got an 06 987 with the 2.7L motor/18" wheels and PASM. I do about 8 track days a year and after a 3 day session at VIR thought some mods might be in order to settle the cars rear end a bit (feels loose under hard cornering) and get rid of some of the body roll. current alignment is -1.0 front, -2.0 rear, no toe in front a bit of toe in rear.

I've been running tires like the Kumho XS and Nitto NT-05 and intend to move to the NT-01 when the 05's are done.

Suggestions I've gotten to improve handling from mechanics has been mainly add GT3 LCA's and rear toe links to start and then add TPC bar and drop link. I have no doubt this will improve thing but the complete package runs about $4k which is way out side of my budget.

I'm looking for something to improve handling a bit without ruining the ride; Has anyone tried the Mantis Sport Rear brace?

If this were a 986 model I could move to the ROW M030 suspension is is very inexpensive, but the new car doesn't seem to offer than option.

thanks for any help with this.

You did not state the mileage but you may be in need of new shocks. I would save for a PSS9 setup and a good alignment. An set of adjustable drop links with and adjustable rear sway bar might settle it down and make it rotate a little better. There are a lot of members who really know suspensions that can comment.

30K on the shocks with lots of track days.

Any info on how long these should last or indicator--other than leaks--that they're done?
