For Sale- Brand New MO30 Genuine Porsche Sport Springs

Hello all,

Was cleaning out the basement and came across two (2) separate sets of brand new, genuine factory Porsche, rear, sport coil springs.

Porsche Part # 986-333-531-11-504.

They have two red strips on one end and a single white on the other.

Just to clarify, these are the rear springs *only* no fronts. [sorry]

They're still unopened, wrapped in the plastic they came in, with the Porsche factory labels on them. I was going to list them on e-bay, but I thought them post it here first. I'm willing to entertain any reasonable offers. [Pelican has them listed for $224.50]

Thanks,

Doc_V

Update:

I did a little digging around and it turns out these are MO30's. They were the European Sport springs, so they lower the car by 20mm and fit all Boxsters up to 02.

The rear springs are 10mm lower than US cars. Should work up to '04.

Blue2000s, How'd you come about this info? I only ask because I'd check with someone who's been a Porsche products manager for 20+ years. That said, he's a pretty busy guy and may have looked it up incorrectly in a rush. I'd just like to get a confirmation from you if I can so I know for sure. I don't want to mislead anyone.

Thanks.

It's well documented. Front RoW is 20mm lower in front and 10mm lower in back. When they were selling all the parts as a kit, Suncoast Porsche had the specs on their web page. Plus, it's about how much my car dropped when I installed the springs. All cars up to '04 are compatible with each other, suspension-wise.

Good luck.

Hey, much appreciation Blue. Thanks for the heads up!

...So I stand corrected, that's a 10mm drop for the rear springs.

Cheers all.
