So you got me buying parts and changing out a few for fun, not sure yet if I needed them but I enjoy something to keep me busy in the evenings. I got some control arms from TRW...they are the exact same as the ones I took off my car, the original ones are even stamped TRW. I'm thinking you can update that chart above ....oh and thanks for causing me to spend more money, guess I'll enjoy it while I can. I'm sure I'll be purchasing more, I just have to fool myself and do a little at a time

I'll report back if car feels any different. Oh I need ideas on sway bar bushings, my car is a 2000 Boxster 'S'.

Pelican sells the kit.
Porsche Boxster Suspension - Page 5

It comes with everything except struts and mounts. I just replaced all my suspensions 2 months ago. Just order the pelican kit and add struts and mounts. Porsche updated the upper strut mount and the front uses 997 upper strut mount and the rear has 987 mounts.
It is pretty easy to replace suspensions on these cars...
