ROW M030 Springs and swaybar. Chritsmas Special

From my 2002 Boxster S with the M030 option code. 40,000 miles on the parts.
Front and rear springs & Rear sway bar.
I take Visa, MC, Discover, Amex, Checks, Moneyorder, Cash and Paypal.

So:
listed in pelican parts....
Front springs ROW M030 986-343-531-11-504-OEM
Rear springs ROW M030 986-333-531-30-504-OEM
Are listed at 202$ per pair.

and the Rear Swaybar ROW M030 986-333-701-21-OEM is $202.50.

So 1/2 retail is @ $303 for the lot. Plus shipping. I dont know how much that would be, I guess about 20-25ish. But I will ship it anyway you want.

James

What did you replace the stock M030 springs with and why? $300 for springs with 40,000 miles seams like a lot when there's a set of almost new Gembella (Kirk) springs for the same price...

J,

I have to agree w/ chitowndad.

Between your used springs and rear sway @ 300ish and the other guys new struts (he wants 650???), you guys together are at 950 + shipping for both and then I have to buy the front swaybar at around another 200..

You can buy the whole kit for $1000 @ sunset NEW (suncoast will match and they are closer to me)

Oh well, i tried....the 40k miles also was a little much too.

I do appreciate your quick response, but need to lower price alot before I would consider. J

I replaced the stocks springs and sway with H&R springs and bar. The reason I did this is that I wanted a lower stance.
If you find the same items for a lower price I will match it. Otherwise I suggest that you should buy the other ones for cheaper.

Ask people around here, the bar and springs are not something that wear out. I dont race, I drive to work and back.

chitowndad: you are correct that you can buy aftermarket springs for about 300 new. Well they are not made by porsche. They also drop the front end a lot. I wanted to lower my car, so I bought the HR springs, well then I found out real quick that I have to spend 600$ on rear control arms. Then I had to get the arms intalled and an alignment done- 550$.
So my 300$ springs cost me an extra 1150$. THAT is why people want a porsche part. These springs drop in and everything bolts back up without issue. And if you dont have the M030 option, you dont know what you are missing. Very nice set up.

Springs do wear out and lose their resilience and rebound ability. Porsche or not.

do you have any pictures of the car with this setup installed? I am curious to see how much lower than stock this sits.
