Yeah and if the Meyle arms are indeed a bit shorter, this would all make sense. I'll probably do the rear LCAs since I'll need an alignment. Also, if the Meyle and Porsche parts are different then...

Yeah that sounds about right - well off to the alignment shop then! Would it be worth it to do the rear LCAs as well since I'll need an alignment?

I jacked up the wheel carrier and then tightened it - I couldn't figure out a good way to get a wrench in there with the car on the ground. Any suggestions? No, I have not had the alignment done.

I would also suggest the front track arms - they are relatively cheap (you can use the 911 part) and I was able to get some vibration out of my steering with replacing them. It's not 100% gone, so...

Sorry to hear that, man... this is my nightmare. I would keep an eye on Craigslist - I always see dismantlers posting Boxsters there. I would also make sure to search "Boxer, Boxster, and Boxter."...

There is some slop in the steering as well - it's not as bad as before I did the other things, but still present. The car has 86k miles. I didn't do the LCAs because I figured I could do the fronts...

I've had three different shops balance the tires, so I'm pretty certain this isn't the case. I had the vibration with my old tires and new tires.

Symptoms of bad LCAs?

So good news - my Boxster is finally enjoyable to drive again! After months of tracking down an infuriating vibration, I successfully remedied about 90% of the issue by installing...

Is the trunk under the carpet wet? If it is, it's your coolant tank that cracked. I had it happen to me last summer and I got a new tank and cap.

Good luck on replacing them - I just did it about a month ago. It's not incredibly hard, but the rears are a PITA. Just take your time and use the right tools. I haven't driven the car yet since I...

I haven't personally done it - seems a bit overblown (no pun intended) based on my research and most mechanics in my area have said similar things - but I got a quote for a new clutch, flywheel, and...

I've had this issue since December 2017 - I'm fairly certain the IMS would have blown up by now. Also, wouldn't the IMS much more likely cause a rear wheel wobble?

Yeah I'm pretty sure this isn't the case. I've had this issue for about 3 months and I'm pretty should the car would not be alive today if that were the case.
