Suspension Recommendations 2002 c4S

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 C4S all Stock with about 62,000 miles (except for 19" 997 turbo wheels/tires - not stock)


Lately my car has been feeling a little loose on the road 75+ MPH and in the turns not holding like it used to.  Tires are like new.

Also seems to be making some crackling noises when the wheel is fully turned and i am making a  slow turn.



Is it time to replace?  maintenance my suspension?  


Are there any maintenance recommendations you guys can suggest?


If it is time to replace, if so what should i be looking at?  I am looking for something similar to stock, if not stock, but of course better would be better.


I am 60% of the time driving on 20-40 mph roads, 39% highway 90-100 mph.   1/year maybe will find myself on the track (truth be told never have, but would like the option).   I don't really care how firm it maybe,  i love to make a good tight turn or cut through the traffic.


I know it is time to do something, i am finding my 84 911 with 42,000 mikes is tighter on the road recently then my c4s.


Appreciate the help, i am sure the topic has been here 20 times now... i just can't seem to find the right thread.

You might just need your stock suspension to be refreshed with new bushings. My C4S is on the stock suspension and it's very tight. I did have the bushings replaced a few years ago because it was starting to creak and groan a bit. If I was planning an upgrade, I would try to find a Porsche X73 suspension. You can't buy them new any longer, but you may be able to find a lightly used one.

I have an 02 C4 Cab with 60,000 miles as well.  I've started researching options for suspension refresh/upgrade specifically to support a better on track experience while maintaining a comfortable daily driver.  At this point I'm ready to move to "coil over" and have found at least one nice set up that claims to provide good road manners while significantly improving the handling characteristics.  A bit pricey so putting money in the piggy bank for now.




I'm working with the US based team of a german company, FVD Brombacher.  The person I deal with is Rhonda and she's very knowledgeable about the products. She's also a "car guy" running her own car on the track.  She has a genuine sense of value/priorities in spend depending on what objectives you give her.


Happy shopping and let us know what you do and how it works.
