Looking to swap my M030 shocks for standard shocks

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2001 Boxster (76k miles) with the OEM M030 suspension. It's great for autocross but too stiff for an everyday-car (at least for me). Anybody have standard shocks they would like to swap or sell? I do plan to keep the M030 sway bars and perhaps springs. The suspension is in good shape, just stiff.

      I currently have a 2002 Porsche Boxster S with 86k miles on it.  I drive it spirited and do some autocross.  I noticed that my right strut started to make some noise and the ride does not seem as firm as it once was.  I am thinking about upgrading my suspension with the ROW M030 kit.  I am interested in adding a bit more handling while maintaining everyday comfort and drivability.  I have read a bunch of articles in regards to all the other parts you should replace when you do the ROW M030 swap.  Upon pricing all the parts they are almost 3k!!  Here are the parts and pricing I have so far:
       
      202                99734301800 2 - Front Strut Mounts 175.5                98633305906 2 - Rear Strut Mounts 74                99634351505 2 - Strut Bearings (front only) 1795
                      ROW M030 European Sport Suspension Kit 170                986DLINKF Front Drop Links 170                986DLINKR Rear Drop Links 13                986FRCOMP front compensation plates(size? 3mm or 6.5mm) 13                986RRCOMP rear compensation plates(size? 3mm or 6.5mm) 38                99634350500 Front Shock Bellows 38                98633350501 Rear Shock Bellows 35                99634330102 Front Bump Stops 50                98633330101 Rear Bump Stops
       
      Can you experts please help me determine if I am missing anything else or are there some parts that I just dont need.....
       
      Also any tutorials/advice that anyone can give me would be great.
       
      THANK  YOU!

      2000 986 Tiptronic, nearly 99k miles.  I am getting an annoying popping/cracking sound coming from the left rear.  While driving it sounds like it is high in the suspension, possibly related to the shock absorber, shock absorber mount, or spring.  I only hear the noise at low speeds - going over speed bumps or backing out of my driveway in the morning.  I know it is difficult to pinpoint what the issue could be by just my description, so I am hoping that someone else has heard this noise and it is obvious to someone who has experienced it before.  It could be as simple as a bad shock/strut, but I've never had one go out so I don't know what it sounds/feels like.  The car seems to respond correctly to the push test (push down and it reflexes back to height).  I also checked the nut at the top of the tower which I saw on several posts could be loose, but it was completely tight.  Sway bar, bushings, mounts, all appear to be good.  I took several videos hoping that it might help identify where this is coming from.  I can replicate the sound by jacking up the rear end and then lowering.  You can actually hear popping on the way up too, but it is very noticeable on the way down.  Please let me know what you think could be the culprit!

      From inside the car, going over a speed bump (sounds more like a squeaking/cracking at 4 seconds):

      Hi guys,
      I've come across a nice deal on a turbo suspension set - does anyone have actual spring rate differences between turbo and c4s spring and dampening rates? I assumed the rear springs will be unusable, since they'll sit higher on the lighter c4s... but the rest should be game.

      I wondering if anyone has the part # for the Euro M030 suspension kit?

      Hi all
      I need to replace the rear shocks on my 996 C4 Cab year 2000. I have mistakenly ordered the Bilstein B4 shocks which are intended for cars with uprated M030 suspension. I'm pretty sure my car has standard suspension as the old shocks had a brown circular sticker.
      The Bilsteins are about 15mm shorter than the old shocks.
      I need to get the car back on the road so I'm considering just fitting the new shocks with the standard old springs. Will this cause me big problems?
      Appreciate any thoughts on this.
      Thanks
      Andy
