It should drop some more - takes a little while to break-in. Should look great soon

The new suspension has been on the car for 8 months. It only takes about a week for it to get to it's final height. It's as low as it's going to get.

There is a drop but it's not too low looking. To me, it's just right. Unfortunately, I didn't take any straight on side shots before the suspension was changed.

What was the final cost and time to install?
Where did you get the parts?
It looks great. I plan on doing this to my car as well.

The kit came from Sunset Porsche. It was about $950-1000 with shipping if I remember correctly. I found an independent mechanic who did the job for $50/hr and he went by the Porsche service time of 11 hours. If you have the dealer do it, you're looking at over $900. It took him about a week to install but I wasn't in a hurry.

I've posted my impressions on this board previously. In short, there shouldn't be a Boxster without it.

Ahh. I assumed you just did this.

The RoW 030 kit includes;shocks,springs sway bars & bushings.

It's only a D.I.Y. if you have all the special tools and such. It took my indy P-Car mechanic 6 hours with just a jack and jack stands and all the tools needed and he did it in my garage.
