Planning a small overhaul of my 996 C2 Mk1 suspension/wheel/tires
Wheels: OEM Sport Design 2 (bbs 2pc- wheels)(mk1 gt3 wheels)
Tires: Sumitomo HTR Z III (225/40/18- 285/30/18)
Suspension: H&R Street Performance Coilovers + H&R Sway Bars (front and rear)
Wheels: OZ Ultraleggera
Tire: Hankook Ventus V12
Any thoughts on the new set-up, issues i may have? experiences with the coilovers,wheels, tires?
With the increased wheel width I think the wheels will be flush with the fenders but if not are spacers even an option?- does anyone have this set up? need to roll fenders? pics?
thanks for your feedback
If you've had your car aligned on a computer, what did you tell the shop the car was most setup like? GT2, Turbo? I'm assuming the alignment computer is going to crash if you tell it that it's a stock 996.
I'm going in for an alignment tomorrow, just for toe, camber and caster. I mistakenly installed a steering wheel one spline off, and had a cheapy alignment done, now that I've corrected the wheel it's off.
It's also off because I had my engine out and also removed many suspenion components during the restoration (both front and rear). I removed one of my coilovers to repair a broken bolt, so I'm sure that is contributing to the bad alignment. I wasn't happy with the front ride height so I setup the car at 26" from ground to wheel well on all 4's (yes I know CB would change that).
I would go in for a CB but can't make it to a good shop in the bay area right now, have to settle on just an alignment.
The last good alignment I had done included a corner balance (ALL done by hand) and the car was 100% perfect.
I'm taking it to the dealer and am wondering what I should be telling them as far as specs (or what car to mimic).
