OK. I've had it with the stock suspension. I was just checking out my tires for the coming spring DE Season, and my relatively newer track tires are corded on the outside shoulder edge. Again. I'm going to do the X73.

I have a lot of confidence with the dealership techs, but NOT with the parts department. I would appreciate it if someone would give me the actual part numbers for the X73 components.

I've done the search, and have the recommended alignment settings for the X73 on the C4S. Million thanks to Loren. Now all I need are the part numbers. Thanks in advance!!

This is the ENTIRE kit part number.

FYI....Gert has it on sale for 1995 Euro shipping included.

Suncoast is $2600


Thanks, Dell. !995 Euro converts to $2415 currently. Plus possible tax and dues if you have the bad luck to be picked by customs. I'll get it locally. The dealer will match any price I can find so they can keep my business. I'll check around for the best price, then deal with them. Should be ready for the the April thaw. Yeehah!

You sure about the part number? I got 000-044-500-38 from another source.

Thanks, Loren and Dell. I'll get working on it this week.

Why MY'03 and up C4S? As far as I know, there were no significant changes to the 996 C4S chassis from MY2002 until the 997 C4S came out in 2005. If there were chassis changes, anyone know what they were?

The Carrera Product Technik Books states "There are no updates or changes to the engine of the 911 Carrera/911 Carrera 4 for model year 2003." As well, the TT Product Technik Book states "There are only minor changes to the suspension of the 911 Turbo for model year 2003." -- so I do not know why the parts list show X73 for MY03 - on.

Loren, you continue to amaze!! Just curious. You are member number 2. Who's member number 1?
In the very early versions of this forums software all Guests were classified as member 1. So technically , I am the first actual member at number 2. Doncapecod is number 3 and Tool Pants is 4.

Newer software releases don't use a member number for guests but I have done upgrades so number 1 although used is "nobody". (Long answer to a short question - eh. ;) )

Yes, ...500-38 for the C4S. Braman Porsche also sells it at a good price, I got it from them for 1699 last yr during their sale. Be sure the pn's are right and the shocks/struts are yellow, there are a few RoW C4S kits out there masquerading as the x73, they're black and exactly what you have now.
