For those who've added ROW 030

Recommended Posts

Did you order springs for your model year or go for a later year (more weight)?

Also did anyone order the 030 springs for a Tip model and put on a Manual car?

from what I looked up in PET, fronts are the same, rear's are different part #'s for Tip cars.

What model of shocks did you use? ROW factory Bilstein's?, aftermarket Sport Bilsteins, ? etc?

Sway Bars? ROW 030's? Aftermarket? and sizes?

planning for mods when I put the car away for winter.

I'd say you have 3 choices.

1. ROW M030. If you go this route, just contact Suncoast Porsche and get the whole enchilada.

2. H&R coilovers.

3. Blistein PSS9

Whatever route you take, unless you have prior experience with suspension setup, I'd go with a turnkey package. When you start the mix 'n match process, unless you really, really, know what you are doing, you'll almost certainly end up with a slower less easy to drive car.

Just IMHO,

PSS9 - The 'performance' solution . A favorite of Track & Autocross enthusiasts, unless restricted to a lesser setup to stay in a certain competitive class

M030 - The 'stock' solution that satisfies most competitve rules

H&R coilovers - The 'budget' solution - Lowers the car to give smaller wheel well gaps - upgraded handling vs stock (non 030) suspension.

This is what I hear from others. I ordered my car with US 030 and 18" wheels - The suspension and car are still more capable off handling the road than I am as a driver.

If you want a more highly tuned suspension than one of theses 'standard' solutions, I recommend you buy Mike Lansky's race car. You will probably spend less on buying his whole 3.4L GT3 boxster than you will doing test-and-tune on all the various combinations of sway bars, GT3 drop links, springs, etc.

What happens to your money AFTER you buy a race car is something entirely different :) :)
