Hi,

I have a 2011 Cayenne S with PASM and steel spring suspension. I am considering lowering the car with the H&R lowering spring set, which says it will lower the car 1.2". I can get the springs for a little over $300.

My questions are: How much should I expect for labor (install springs and alignment)? Can I go to the dealership to get this done? Will I be voiding part or all of my warranty? Will the lowering put potentially too much stress on the PASM shocks?

I'm considering doing this primarily for aesthetic reasons, although I do think lowering the center of gravity a little bit will help handling (it already handles very well). It will probably never see off road activity so I'm not concerned about losing clearance.

Thanks,

Jason

Here is what I've found out so far:

H&R springs from tire rack are $312 (part number 28938.1)

I've gotten two quotes from dealerships, one was $1,059.20 and one was $1,200 (install springs and alignment)

The independent shops have bee around $600 to install the springs and $200 for alignment.

Also from my research it sounds there is a special tool for the PASM shocks needed for the spring install.
