Suspension options

The next upgrade for me will likely be a suspension mod. I saw some very nice comments regarding the X74 suspension kit but alas, it only fits 2002 onward cars. So thats out. It then comes down to the rest of world sports suspension (ROW030) which is about 1100 bucks or Bilstein PSS9 + GT3/TRG sway bars. The ROW030 kit includes a whole suspension system including sway bars and is still all Porsche which helps when the time comes to sell the car. It's also not too low and it's not adjustable which is probadly fine for me.

The PSS9 plus GT3 sway bars and drop links so the sway bars will fit my car would be around 1800 for PSS9 + 1100 for sway bars and drop links.

Both would cost between 700 and 1100 to have installed with an alignment.

So, going Porsche is 2k, going PSS9 would be 4k more or less installed. A friend of mine got the ROW installed and likes it. He'd like the car maybe a little lower but that said, much lower and you're grinding every driveway and speed bump.

So right now, I'm leaning towards ROW030 probadly.

And I'm wrong. Gert from Carnewal says it works on all the 996s. Check out my other post on March 8, 2006.

I like the site! I have two questions, amongst several problems I have with my 1998 996 Conv. which is still under Porsche factory used car garantee (none covered by the garantee!!) 1. How to take out the CD reader from the GPS unit, it is defective and Porsche tells me that only the garage can do it and the entire GPS has to be dismantled! 2. about one in 4 times when changing from 1st to 2nd gear, the box jumps into neutral, porsche tells me that its the way I drive!! (my 4th porsche 911) the gear box is under garantee but they refuse to accept that there is a problem. PS I lve in France. Any info would be appreciated.
