definitely interested in the specs of the parts that you used. sizes and types of spacers, bolt lengths, etc.

Thanks

Parts used are listed in my original post and sourced from McGill Motorsports in the UK though as others have posted there are other sources closer. I just found they had a larger inventory of metric sizes.

The mounting hardware is listed in my previous post.

The custom stainless spacers are of my own design and I can share CAD files with you and you could have a local machine shop make them or I could possibly make some for you as others have also expressed interest.

Continuing DIY suspension mods today...

Designed, machined, and installed home made rear subframe connector on my 986s and my buddy’s 987s. Based on Pedro’s techno brace. I built mine out of 7075.
Can share CAD drawings if anybody wants them.

Dropped stabilizer bar bushings to lower stabilizer bar, unbolted midpipes from headers, and placed and bolted subframe bar. On buddy’s 987s exhaust doesn’t need moving to fit bar and the install on his car took maybe 15 minutes.

Just a random bump, I was reading these threads, these look pretty awesome! You re still building your car up so have you have a chance to drive on them yet with the new M030 suspension?

Steve,

All is installed and it is very solid and all is working very well. I am still on stock US alignment settings so as you know I am working on camber plates and LCAs to get the camber where we I want it.
