I must say, I love everything about this car. From the muffler bypass pipes, to the black wheels, and color combo…..perfect in my opinion for a 964. With one exception….that 4wd ride height 😉 So today Adam dropped by and we got to work. Since I had a set of 3.6 turbo H&R springs laying around, we decided to go with those and a new set of Bilstein HD shocks. The nice thing about the 964 setup is that there …

The car we brought back from the NJ PPI 🙂 We knew it would need a new suspension, so Mark found a set of PSS9’s for it and I went about the install this last week. While I was in there, it got the remaining 6 upper spark plugs and new hood and hatch struts. Courtesy of Rennlist. Front end coming apart. And bilstein installed 😉 Rears are a little more involved, but doable. We have a little drop link …

Went after the leaking rear shocks on this 911SC today. The left rear was completely blown out and puking oil everywhere, so it needed to be replaced. I also found the air intake boot torn, so we will be replacing that while we are in there. Top nut of the shock is accessed behind the engine. The lower shock bolts on this car were incredibly seized up, but a big enough breaker bar and some heat took care of that. …

A few months ago, I installed Eibach lowering springs and new Bilstein struts/shocks on this 99 996. Last week we finished off the project with a set of Eibach front and rear sway bars. While a little hard to get our hands on, Mike eventually tracked the rear bar down and brought it by to install the front bar. Goodbye body roll 🙂 Front bar is hidden on top of the front subframe, so that needs to come down to …

Knocking out a little suspension upgrade on a 996C2 this week. We are installing Bilstein HD shocks/struts with Eibach lowering springs, which will give the car a little lower stance, and a firmer ride which will help in the corners. We got tied up slightly due to not having new bump stops/bellows for the fronts, so that has set us back slightly. Old front struts and springs Old rear struts and springs. After a little work, we have one rear …

With nearly 100k miles on the clock, it was time to replace the shocks and struts in this 2.7L Boxster. The obvious choice for replacement comes from Bilstein, so I got them ordered up, and was able to get the job knocked out. I have never really enjoyed doing the rears on the boxster, as the design of the mid engine and multi link rear suspension makes it a lot more involved then it should be, lol. The big kicker …
