I run the control arms up front and the toe links in the back. Extremely well made, user rebuildable and any shop can adjust.

Well the motor is about 95% ready to come out. No interest whatsoever in the car as is.

Selling the Boxster S $35k OBO

Can't edit the title - I'm getting ready to pull the motor so last chance to buy as is. I'll take $25k. The Motons and Motec system are worth more than half that. If I don't sell as is - I'll fix...

I went with the minimum drop - which on mine turned out to be 18mm. Another reason why I went with the Ohlins - and the fact that height and spring pre load are separate adjustments. The 400/457...

It's also not just about spring rate. The type of shocks make a difference as well. I was very concerned with the spring rates on the Ohlins RT's (400lb front and 450 rear or something like that) I...
