Has anybody tried fitting polly bushes to them all? I was wondering if it would be too harsh?

If you want 5-10% cheaper than the US competition (sad but true, sorry) but you want your parts out of the door within 3-5 days max (instock or not!), Design911 in the UK will get your mood back and more. They shoot by FedEx... and your order is at your front door in less than 10-12 days. The guys at Design911 gets their own part orders every 2 days so they don't screw up dates and stuff with their customers Very serious business only.

I've ordered every parts that you can see under a Boxster (suspension wise). Front + rear. Rest assured that if you do the same, your car will be back to exactly when it came out once from the dealer.

karl@design911.com a scary brilliant chap. Simply the best service I ever had RE parts shopping.

If you want to visuallise what this full suspension overhaul kit involves, see PEP parts below. Of course, this also includes the official ROW M030 Porsche Tequipment Sport Suspension Kit.

Price tag is aprox: $3,000 excluding shipping (still cheap considering it will drive and handle just like a NEW car). Literally NOBODY could best Design911.com’s prices... and I did my homework believe me.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks for the input and diagrams. I'm going to start with the sway bar, drop links and control arm as those I visually inspected and need addressed right now. Then on to tie rods and shock parts if required. I think my rear wheel bearing might be shot as there is a humming sound.

I'll check with sideline as well.

When do I get to stop fixing and start driving?
