I know it is not recomended to put the x74 on a 99 chasis but has anyone done it? I really want the ride height and feel of the x74 on my 99 C2.

What would happen if i installed it?

Not an answer to your question but I rencently put the X74 package on my 02 996 and it is great. Way better than the stock musho suspension.

I think the objection has to do with placement of engine bolts which would make it more likely to bottom out the engine on the early 996's. I understand this was changed on later 996 models making it less likely to bottom out on those bolts and crack the block. Porsche makes a plate which covers the pan and is recommended on early 996 models when X74 is installed.

Took the car to the Dealer and they told me that the upper strut bearing is different, i have to purchase it

for $800 so I said no way,LOL so they didnt do it..

Took a '99-01 upper strut bearing for the front, connected it to the X74 bolts right in, no problem..

It's a matter of it's recommended by Porsche or not... the PSS9 coilover has one part

for 99-04, should be all the same.. Mine's all assembled, i'm having Sharkwerks install it next week.

Did you get new struts or did it just bolt on what you already had? Any impressions besides the ride height? Installation cost? Did your dealer do it?
