May be a newbie question....

First off....I did search for my answer and didn't find one that satisfied me enough to spend the money first.

Here is the question - will a 2002 Boxster S OEM suspension (shocks, springs and sway bars) fit on a 1999 base Boxster? I think the answer is yes. There is a good deal on a low mileage dealer takeoff and I need new shocks. I am doing the suspension refresh and trying to do it as cost effectively as possible. Not racing it so I don't need a $2k upgrade on the coilovers.

Thanks in advance of for the responses.

I believe you are correct and they should fit. Might be good to send Woody a PM and ask as he will know for sure (itsnotanova)

Just in case anyone has the same question....Woody's answer was yes but they will be much stiffer. I got a 3k mile takeoff from an 02 Boxster S (shocks, springs and sway bars) for $600.
