Suspension Upgrade


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to upgrade  my shock absorbers on my Boxster Anniversary due to a fault rear one & because aftermarket are cheaper & better than standard, my question is because my Boxster has the sports suspension from the factory which is 10mm lower than standard should i go for the Bilstein B8 shocks or the Designtek D220 Coilcovers?

PSS9 coilovers are awesome.  Just got mine on as I've decided to putting my Boxster in to more track driving, but the PSS9's are great for street too (set around 7 on the shock).  They are more than double what the Designtek ones are (at about £1700), but I've seen a few negative reviews of Designtek stuff (especially their exhausts) so not sure I'd trust my handling to them (especially at such a low cost).  I've only managed to find one guy who reviewed putting their coilovers (on a 996).  He was happy overall, but had to do a lot of adjustments to get there, and didn't have a long term review.  Also you should really make sure you have a good adjustable rear toe arm and adjustable droplinks so you can properly align it all (I used Tarrett Engineering stuff for the adjustables and love them).

 

Anyway, if you are on a budget, I'd personally go with the seperate shocks/springs, and run stock heights so you don't need the adjustable arms/links.  I used to run a Bilstein/H&R combo on my TT and it performed very well on both street and track.

 

Thanks!
