PSS-9 Corner Balance thoughts

Recommended Posts

I'm removing the X74 suspension from my '03 Targa on Tuesday after 3000 miles, and installing PSS-9's. I've been told that I need to "corner balance" the car.

After the swap, if I get the car realigned at the Porsche dealer, is that enough? Do they typically corner balance a car during an alignment? What exactly is this, and is it absolutely necessary? If so, what does it typically cost?

Sorry for all of the questions, but I don't understand some of these processes. I don't want to go the Porsche dealer and hear a great big sucking sound from my wallet :eek: if I'm not sure about what they may tell me.

It is not necessary to corner balance the car. You can just have the car set to whatever ride height you want.

An alignment is not a corner balance.

A corner balance is usually 2-3 hours of labor.

If you intend to track the car then you probably want to have it corner balanced. You also probably want to have a different alignment from stock which is another topic of discussion. If you corner balance the car it should be done at the weight distribution that it will be run at i.e. empty the trunk(s), remove the spare tire, remove all loose items from the cockpit, half a tank of gas, driver buckled in with helmet, etc.

If you want details of what a corner balance accomplishes google it on the web. There are a lot of technical sources out there.
