Nice looking Box. How much lower than stock? Do you also have a pic from behind, or flush accross one of the sides? I wanted to see better how much the wheels stick out of the wells (if at all).

Thx.
Z.

Thumbs up

Z, I will attempt to take some more photos today. The springs lowered the vehicle by 1", and after a week (due to settling) a grand total of 1.2" all around. Rides just like stock, but handles a tad bit better.

Hey Bisimoto, isn't your badge supposed to be "986" and not "968?"

how hard of a DIY would spring change be?

That is funny....I should stick to the performance arena, and leave the cosmetic stuff alone. A replacement badge is ordered and on its way

Nonetheless, I did the spring install myself, and it took me 5 hours. I even changed my cracked axles boots and brakes while I was at it. Not an easy job, and a lift is a huge benefit. The spring cost me about $300.

I remember when I replaced my own springs, I started with the fronts and it took me less that 1 hour to do them, I was thinking this is going to be a piece of cake...untill I got to the rears, which was a total pain in the @$$! In hindsight the job would have been easier if I would have bought the porsche ball joint remover. (or simmilar tool) this would have saved me plenty of time and effort.
