Suspension question?

How would a person know if they have a boxster with a ROW suspension besides it being in the option list? Is there anyway of just looking at the springs that would indicate such?

I believe there a color code on the springs. That's if the color code can still be seen.

Yup, just looked up by PET catalog, the ROW Boxster front springs should be blue/yellow (for up to 2002 models).

So the whole spring would be that color or is there a place to look for those colors?

The springs will be painted black as per normal but there will be coloured dabs of the appropriate paint, (usually) at the top coil of the spring.
But that's just the springs - the rest of the ROW setup consists of a combination of springs, shocks and front / rear rollbars too.

The kit has new springs (dabbed on color over black springs showing front vs. rears), new shocks, bushings, front and rear swaybars.

There is a noticable differnce in rideheight between the US and RoW setups.

Are you asking about the ROW M030 or just ROW? Different things.
