Blistien sport / HD questions


Recommended Posts

:drive: I have a 1999 996 C2 6 speed, Looks like the previous owner installed Bilstien HDs. I would like to lower the car though I suspect the HDs are taller and I would have to change them out for the sports, I am also interested in ajusting the toe / camber, I have gone through the posts and have not found this info for my car.

The HD were designed to work with the ROW std and M030 springs. With that in mind they will work OK with lowering springs like H&R as the H&R lower only 15mm more than the M030. I have talked to a tech at Bilstein and the Sport are the same valving as the HD and only the rod is slightly shorter. Many people have used the HD with H&R springs and had no problems. While the sport might be idea to insure that you won't bottom the shock out it is an unnecessary thing.

so you are saying it is not worth to pay extra $400 for the sport shock?
