Changing coil springs

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am planning to put back the original OEM front and rear coil springs, because I don't like the H&R springs that the previous owner of my boxster S had put in. How hard is it to do this ? I already did the same job on my 2002 Civic. Will it be the same level of difficulty ? For the tools, I had to rent a coil spring compressor from the auto-store and thats about it.  All other tools I had. When I looked at the Porsche Service Manual, I was a bit scared on all the procedure. Should I expect a lot of surprises?

Not too difficult with the right tools.

Make sure you have the correct compensation plates for your springs.

Once installed I would (carefully) drive the car for a week to let the springs settle - then do a full alignment.

You will need an alignment due to the ride height change by moving back to factory springs. Plus it's a safe move whenever you do suspension work.
