2009 Cayenne Turbo S front lower control arm in 955

Recommended Posts

Has anyone installed 08-10 Cayenne Turbo S lower control arm in 955 S.  I have MY04 Cayenne S.

And can MY06 955 CTTS LCA be installed in MY04 CS?

 

part number for MY09 CTTS is 955-341-017-61.

part number for MY06 CTTS is 955-341-017-50

 

I went to the dealer and compared the two, they look almost identical except for a little bit bigger outer diameter where it joins the upper control arm.  It is the #3 bolt location that seems very slightly larger in outer diameter.

Hi, I am also interested in using the -61 control arms in a 2004 cayenne turbo, do you have any updates regarding this?

 

From my research the -33 control arms are stock control arms for the 955's, and according to part catalogs and online stores they also fit in 2008-2010 957's 

 

The -50 control arms are for the 955 Turbo S and they can be used in the 955 CTT and S. The only difference is a full rubber bushing instead of a hydraulic one

 

The -61 control arms are apparently an updated version of the -50's., they have the same rubber bushing, but they only fit 2008-2010 957's, according to all the online stores and catalogs. 
But if the -33's work in all Cayennes 2003-2010, why wouldn't the -61's also work. There's also a huge price difference between the -50's and -61's, the -50's are only from Porsche direct, about $350, while the -61's made by TRW and sold on ebay are half of that

Hi @GSpence2,

 

Can you share with us what was the end result in changing all the major front suspension parts? How does it feel, sound, ect... I am preparing to do full front and rear overhaul and would really appreciate your feedback.

Hi Camilee 

Funny you should ask as I now have a calibration issue with my suspension fault code P1437. My laptop died just as I was coding the last height sensor (HR) so I’m gonna have to do the whole thing over again.

 

But to your question the difference was night and day. The ride much smoother quieter the steering much faster to respond and more accurate. The road feel when really pushing it felt more planted more solid and whereas before I could hear and feel the rear end breaking loose I don’t feel that anymore and no more hop and skittishness under hard braking (my Pig is not stock ?).

 

 I changed the full front arms and strut mounts all tie rods and sway bar links and sway bar bushings. On the rear I changed the lower arms upper arms and track arms shock mounts and also changed the rear links and sway bar bushings.

Update. So new suspension has been on the truck a little more than a month and I’ve driven it hard and a couple of drag strip days. Guess what?

 

The inner tie rods are already shot! No matter because my rack is leaking anyway so I’ll yank the whole assembly at once. 

 

My feedback: go OEM on the suspension bits. While aftermarket kits are super attractive because of their costs, they’re not worth it in the long run.

 

After 1 month about 3900 miles and a couple of trips into the RPM Range 2 zone and the inner tie rods are done!?! Not acceptable.

      My front wheel was making a rattling noise for about the last week, and this morning as I drove out of my driveway and turned the wheel, I could hear a loud popping noise coming from my wheel whenever I turned. My best guess is that I drove over a pothole and the control arm / bushing moved out of place. Would this be covered under the OE warranty? Or should I take it to a mechanic?

      If you notice your car is squeaking a lot at front, not smooth over bumps, has noises coming out of front, chances are your shock mount bushings are damaged and need replacement.
      If you need to do this, I hope you can use this tutorial to get it all fixed.  Hope it helps.  Feel free to give feedback afterwards.  Thank you.
       
      Pics labeled *-DRV are for driver side shock...otherwise everything else is same on both sides.

      Folks,
      I started noticing this intermittent creak/groan on the driver's side front suspension, every time I egress the car, after a spirited drive. 
      I have had some creaking due to the lubrication loss in the ball joint area from the rear and have used the hole-in-the-rubber-boot to inject grease to keep the noise from recurring. I did the same for the front, just to be sure.
      This noise puzzles me.
      Based on my research, it may be the front strut mount bearing but didn't want to go about replacing parts without your opinions.
      It doesn't occur when the steering wheel is moved from corner to corner though or feel different during a drive.
      Shows up only when there is downward pressure on the foot area in the driver side, during egress or when pressure is applied on the car side fender over/near the strut area. 
      Here is a video of the latter, for audio on two creak/groans between the spring movement.

      Appreciate your insights on what this can be...
      My car is clocking nearly 173K ...so wondering if this can be a simple DIY  or figure out the need to have a complete strut bearing and/or strut replacement.
       
      Thank you,
      V

      With my Boxster S, it was the lateral arms... the ones that goes front to back. In the 197K miles of ownership, I think I replaced at least all of them twice and a few three times.

      My 2009 C2S has a clunking/rattle in the right rear. I had it up on jacks and could not find it. I checked the three bolts on the top of the struts, I put a tire iron in there and twisted and wedged and no joint/bushing moved more than the others.

      I am very sure it is a control arm. So, unless someone in Philly has some chassis ears they can lend me for a day, I want to just replace the most common offender. 997 331 043 01

      So, which rear control arm goes first?
      Anyone know the torque values for this part?

      Peace
      Bruce in Philly
