93k miles time to do the suspension.. Ideas


Recommended Posts

I have the famous clunking track arm issue and thought it was time to develop a strategy for what I should do to my suspension. Should I remain stock it is a 2003 Boxster S or go with After Market suspension. I want to go in once and be done with it. I don't want to continuously tweke the suspension. I just completely rebuilt my 914 suspension and it drives like new. That's what I want to do with the Boxster.

What would you do?

Regards

James

I am at the same exact point. Clunking noise from rear (seems worse after car is warmed up) and I would like to lower the car some. Will be anxious to hear what you did.

I took my car to the dealership to have the suspension inspected. They did it as a courtesy as they do most of the work on my car. I was told that my suspension was in excellent shap and that I had ver little movement in my right rear track arm. They test it by jacking up the car and hold the track arm while hitting the wheel with a heavy rubber hammer to see if there is any movement. It is amazing how this little movement translates into such an annoying sound!!! Seems almost like the funny bone in your arm. Just a little impact has such a dramatic outcome!!

My plan is to replace the arm when I replace the rear tires and have the alignment done. The other question is weather I have both done in anticipation of the driver side failure. I am thinking I will replace both track arms with stock components as they have lasted 94k and no reason do upgrade as I am happy with my stock S ride.

I will keep you posted as to my progress

Regards

James
