ROW M030 Part Number?

Recommended Posts

I have recently got ROW M030 installed in my '02 986S by the dealer. Can someone confirm if the followings is the correct kit part number? It isn't clear from the PET.

000 044 500 21

I think the shocks changed several times from MY02-MY05. Not that one is any better than the other.

Different weights of cars (body style) , transmissions, 4WD (996's), etc. all affect the cars handling so springs, shocks and sometime swaybars are different. Porsche really does tune these suspensions to the cars.

I see. So the 000 044 500 21 would've been the latest revision of ROW M030 right? I'd imagine for 986, all the revisions should work for all model years... is there a different version of M030 for say MY00-02 v.s. MY02-04?

ROW M030 is so much better compared to stock. I don't understand why people complain about the harsh ride.. it is still soft enough for highways, and body roll is significantly reduced.

Not for Boxsters - Carrera's have changed, there was a pretty major change for MY02 and the 3.6 liter engine - plus you can get the X74 (20 mm lower) for MY02 - on Carrera's since they added some chassis stiffening.


Is there a list somewhere that describes the various P/Ns for the different configurations and years of 996?

That might be a nice thing to have published.
