1999 996 rear handeling problem

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help?

The rear of the car feels like the backend is about slide-out when cornering

I have new tyres on the rear and I have just replaced the anti-roll bar bushes all round

But I did notice when fitting the rear bushes that roll bar moved very freely as if the bushes where to

Big but I measured them and they were the same as the old ones

The roll bar should not move around freely. I would double check your bushes, bolts, and fasteners.

Did you use genuine replacement parts or aftermarket?

New tires can make the car feel squirrely for the first few hundred miles.

Different road surfaces can also produce this feel (the rear tires are very wide).

You can also have the alignment checked, perhaps something is way out of whack.

Different bushes are used depending on the thickness of the roll bar, you need the diameter of the roll bar to order the rubber bushes, and believe me, they need to strain.

use a caliper to measure the bar, and account for missing paint if it is corroded. Pelican has at least three different sizes on their site, and I'm sure the porsche catalogue has any others.

My car also feels rather loose in the rear with new tires...i've simply accepted it as it is aligned and nothing is loose underneath. *shrug* It's a Porsche? :)
