2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Sat Apr 14, 2018 3:13 pm    Post subject: C4S lowering springs...again Reply with quote

I'm about to buy some springs for my C4S to get rid of the horrendous arch gap.

D911 list the H&R springs as part no 29385-1 giving a 25mm drop (over std I think not the C4S height)

However, just looked on H&R's own site as they have a sale on, full set giving 25mm drop front and rear for £245 inc vat except the part number is 29466-2?

Must say I don't have a massive amount of confidence in D911 but can anyone confirm which is correct? you would think the manufacturer is right and D911 are wrong.....again

You would be amazed at the effect a decent set of wheel spacers have on a C4S.

Low cost (alternative?) and if you still want to lower then you haven't wasted any money on the spacers as can keep them on as well for that ultimate stance Grin

I was really surprised after fitting spacers to mine and tbh no need for lowering really Thumb

Good spot on the H&R sale. They specifically state for 4wd models, incl 4S so id say take the ones from the H&R website.

I’m very tempted myself to be honest.

As your talking spacers.

I have a 997.1 c4s with Turbo wheels and have spacers, I think 5mm but need to check.

How big can I go?

Oh err mrs

Thanks for the replies chaps, I will definitely go with spacers but I still fancy the low stance, not rude boy low I am after all a pillar of the community!

Seeing as I have highlighted the great price from HandR can anyone return the favour and tell me where the best place to get spacers from is?

RUF spacers are the best IMO as they do an interlocking hubcentric front at 7mm. Not overly easy to get hold of and expensive!!

Failing this, I think H&R again do good spacer kits for the 996 and they also can supply studs if you wish to adapt the hubs.

If you are going for a 15mm rear then many (including H&R/Eibach) are the bolt on type which already feature studs/nuts and you just use your existing wheel bolts to fix in place. The wheel bolt heads sit in the 'pockets' behind your alloy wheel once in place.

In terms of where? eBay probably! Dont know

RUF UK don't list them on their website 'shop' but if you email Richard he can get them from Germany for you (or order direct from the DE website). There is shipping, tax and a bank/PayPal fee which they charge on top.

The spacers are excellent quality and for the fronts you just need longer wheel bolts which you can get from fleabay.

I didn't want to risk causing a vibration and so far all is super with mine!

For anyone interested, I have a set of H&R lowering springs for a C4 Cab/Targa that I mistakenly purchased for my C2. They are brand new, never installed. http://www.hrsprings.com/application/search/results/31/551/2003/
Part number 29466. $250 Cnd
