new suspension questions

I'm redoing the suspension on my track boxster, currently has the M030 ROW and am replacing that. Is there anything form the M030 that would be worth keeping with the new MCS system. Particularly front and rear sway bars.

MCS= motion control systems. For spec boxster you can have pss9 or MCS, MCS seems to have more aftermarket help and support

Aaahhhh...... we were just having a conversation this afternoon. I'd heard there was another spb-legal coilover, but didn't know what it was.
Good to know!

If you are buying new, get MCS. Will you run Spec Boxster spring rates? They are street-able.

Are you running stagger or square wheels and tires?

You will be fine keeping the M030 bars, but at some point you may want to upgrade to a more adjustable front bar such as the factory 996 GT3 front.

Consider replacing all the top strut mounts front and rear when you do the swap. Go spherical if you don't have to be in a racing class, but the factory ones are not that expensive and will be the latest 997 part.
