I recently did a suspension overhaul when I replaced my inner CV joints out of necessity. Problem I am having is they cannot align it properly. Because of the lowered suspension and change in geometry the rear toe in is more than it should be. I have ordered a pair of rear control arms from TRS to allow for adjusting toe, hopefully. So now I am looking to replace the Meghan racing tie rods with something that will allow for greater adjustment for proper alignment of the front end. Does anyone have an experience/insight into this type of setup for the street? Can anyone recommend outer tie rods? Will stock factory ones work?
List of what was replaced:
All wheel bearings with *** units repacked with Hi Temp synthetic grease
All 4 struts/shocks with Bilstein B8's along with upper bearings/caps, bump stops, dust boots
All 4 springs with H&R 29779 Lowering springs (Blue)
All 4 lower coffin bars/ball joints with Meyle units
2 rear track arms with units from Vertex auto.
2 rear control arm/ball joint Meyle units.
2 front track arms not sure if Meyle or vertex auto.
2 Inner tie rods
2 outer tie rods with Meghan racing units, adjustable blue color
4 Drop links with Tarrett adjustable units
Eibach 26mm front swaybar along with bushings
factory 19.6 rear swaybar along with bushings
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?
MY 99 C2 sits over 3/4 inch lower in the rear than front when measured from level ground to top of wheel well with consistent tire pressure. Assuming this is the correct way to measure, is this an indication that the rear springs are tired and need replaced? I presume the car should sit level with new springs?. Car appears to be aligned properly although I have not had it aligned in the 2 years I've owned the vehicle.
