996TT Suspension Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I put some H&R coilovers on my 02' 996TT a while back, they've since failed. I installed a speaker box which made the car a little heavier in the back. I chose the H&R's because having the adjustability to keep the car looking even was important but was probably a factor in them failing.
Put in a call to H&R and they do not re-build them. Also called Bilstein and they could do a re-build but the turnaround time was a couple of months.
I'm debating to either get new shocks and lowering springs or going with some low end coilovers like the D2's, BC Racing or KSports. I only drive on LA streets (a bit bumpy at times) and have no intention on driving on the track.
If money weren't an option I would go ahead and get the PSS9's or PSS10's, but $3K+ for the type of driving I do seems a bit unnecessary especially when I plan to sell the car within the next 6 months.
I understand these entry level products aren't as good as the Bilsteins or KW's, but I need some opinions on what the pros and cons on these. Also are they a major difference between them and the H&R's?

Do you still have all the OEM strut hardware? If so, you could do the Euro springs paired with a set of the Bilstein Sport struts. That would make for a fantastic ride and lowered look; albeit not as low as a set of the normal H&R springs. Are you familiar with the Euro springs? - If not you could always pair the H&R sport springs with the Bilstein Sport shocks. - Pretty nice street setup honestly.
