  1. Hi All, I'm looking for a set of Standard/OEM springs to suit a 996 Turbo Cabriolet. I'm located in Adelaide, so if anyone could help me out or knows where I could come across a set please let me know. I would post in the WTB Marketplace forum but I assume since I'm new I can't? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello. I’m working on a 2000 Boxster S, Tiptronic, 3.2lt, with 155500 km, which is being heavily modified. As such I’m parting out a lot of its original 'S' components out for anyone that has an 'S', or wants to upgrade their base Boxster to S spec. Available is the Motor (3.2lt), Tiptronic Gearbox, Wheels, Suspension (inc the rear S hubs that fit the larger brakes via 130mm bolt spacing), the full Brake setup- S calipers, rotors, Master cylinder and ABS unit, Most of the interior (Blue Leather version) - seats, dashboard, door linings, lavender carpet. The whole wiring loom (*minus the ASB sensor plugs), ’S” exhaust muffler. and the Headlights (early Gen, fried eggs, and Tail Lights). & many assorted loose trim items Im also sorting through a large number of 997 odd parts, so bear with me as i compile that list : for now i know i have a 997 C4S Dual Mass Flywheel & Clutch, and the 997 C4S mufflers. more to come soon Disclosure: I have bought this car from Pickles 18 months ago with the intention of using it as a base for a sort of hot rod project. It has clean panels and a good looking interior, but someone in its history felt the need to boy racer tinker cosmetically with it- as its engine manifold has been painted Maroon/Gold, and the Wheels have had Black added to them quite poorly (overspray visible on the calipers etc) I have driven it briefly in which time i can confirm that the motor starts smooth, runs without smoke, no rattles and has good power. Given its a tiptronic I’m not sure if any previous owner has pulled the gearbox off to do an IMS replacement as it has no clutch to need servicing. (I have a video of its startup and exhaust/running if requested. I have not done a formal leak down test as i do not have such equipment on hand). During driving there is a rumble from a rear corner, which sounds like a worn wheel bearing or CV joint, and as it had locknuts on the wheels, likely no-one has been able to take these off & service the noise recently. Inspection underneath shows a smear of CV grease, so my current assumption is a CV boot has failed and been replaced prior to those lock-nuts, but i would also assume it would be best to replace both rear wheel bearings to get the most benefit of the 'S' Hubs & larger brakes. Later i will also have available the bumpers, wings/fenders, and bonnet. and the convertible top. Further details: -Wheels: 18 inch, turbo twist style. No curbing to the metal, but low quality over-paintwork, so I would advice media blasting and powder coating if your wanting to restore them, but otherwise very suitable for Track Days: Front: 7.5 x 18” ET50 - 225 / 40 / R18 Rear: 9 x 18” ET52 - 285 / 35 / R18 -Tyres; Yokohama S-drive Half worn, aged $1500 for the set -Brakes inc Rotors 130mm caliper mounting bolt spacing throughout 996 351 425 11 996 351 426 11 996 352 421 13 996 352 422 13 Rotors; 318mm 28mm (Measuring 27.9mm) & 298MM 24mm (Measuring 23.14mm) #same as Boxster/Cayman S models all the way through to 2012 $1200 -Master cylinder $200 -ABS controller $200 -Shocks/CoilOvers x4 ; prefer to sell as pairs; $200 per axle -Suspension subframe -front $100 -rear sides x2 $200 pair -crossmember $100 -diagonal brace bars $50 -Hubs (“S”) Front versions are same on all 986 Boxster Rears are S version: 986 331 157 20, with Bolt spacing for the S calipers $200 each corner inc LCA (lower control arm/ coffin box) -Drive Shafts $100 for the pair (probably best as parts/need a full rebuild of CV internals) -Sway Bars $100 each -Engine (3.2L) S model.

  3. I'm looking for ideas and recommendations for suspension set up. Currently my car is track oriented; after 35 years of spirited club competition (1984 3.2 Carrera that I've owned since new) it is time to ease the old girl into semi-retirement. This is a car that genuinely has seen more track miles than road miles. The engine/gearbox has been rebuilt with full reward for excellent service, engine by Michael Newton now with ITB, dual sparky things, high compression forged pistons, gt3 crank and rods, 3.5L of goodness, motec, lsd. Not too wild a cam, it is tractable, strong and drives in a more friendly fashion than when it was new. There are big brakes, gearbox rebuilt, wevo quick change - everything mechanical is superb. Except that the suspension is rock, rock hard. Unforgiving. Lovely for the track and an absolute pain otherwise. So I want to consult with someone knowledgeable and arrive at a balance that will provide reasonable road manners, acceptable track handling - stiff and responsive but not rock hard. I'm thinking to change the torsion bars for something a bit softer (currently 23mm front and 33 rear) and upgrade all the suspension bushings by replacing the track oriented hard nolathane with spherical bearings for compliant movement. ( I've noticed that as the chassis loads up there are times that the suspension does not play ball.) New shocks. Whatever it needs. After 35 years of sensational fun the budget, while a consideration, is not the first cab off the rank. I'm attracted to some of the options by Elephant racing and also the progressive shocks by KW but have made no decisions yet. I want to ensure that the shocks and the Torsion bars are in tune with one another. I've been holding off on buying new road tires (Currently on A050 17" and/or depending on the track and the weather, Kumho 16") to complete the package and am interested in what is recommended by other 911 enthusiast drivers for road use. I'm in Sydney but would consider taking my 911 to other centres if there's someone truly exceptional and am looking forward to the collective wisdom of this forum. Over to you guys.

  6. I'm advertising these parts on behalf of a 911-loving friend. It may take me some time to provide answers in the forum so any enquiries are best directed by phone or SMS to Jim on 0423 048 776. Items are located in Toowoomba, Queensland. Why's Jim not posting this himself? He's an independent mechanic specialising in European cars. He also owns and races a couple of 911s. He's better with motors than modems, so he fixes my cars and I help him with all things digital, such as this ad.

    Hi fellow PFA members, I have just found that my original rear RH Boge shock has dropped its oil. Looking back through my cars history, a previous owner replaced the fronts with Bilsteins about 4 years ago. Do I replace the Boge units? put in some similar Bilsteins? or do I go for broke (easy to do!) and upgrade all 4 corners with something like a B16 kit? or equivalent? I would be grateful for any advice/recommendations from other 964 C4 owners or 911 owners who have faced the same decision. The cars main use is touring and street, however have recently developed an appetite for supersprints, but am sure this will remain as a hobby if I want to stay a hubby :-)
  9. Hi all, I seek to perform this rear sway bar conversion to my '81 924. I have the 20mm front sway bar in place, and standard springs/height and shocks all round. I'll be upgrading them over time. The car understeers in tight corners right now. Is the 14mm the best compliment to the 20mm front bar, or should I pursue the 18mm from a later car? Will the 18mm make the car too "oversteery"? Also, does anyone have the following bits available? 1. Rear sway-bar. 2. Removable portion of the mounting brackets that hold the bushings to the torsion bar housing. 3. Bushings (if you don't have these - I'll manage). 4. "Dog-bone" drop links and bolts. 5. Extended eccentric adjusting bolts that hold the sway-bar to the trailing arms. Thanks for the advice! Appreciated.

    WTB: Front strut.

    Trying to do a wheel alignment and have problems with camber setup, figuring it's most likely bent strut from measurements taken. So chasing a BOGE left hand strut or happy to buy a pair if you don't want to split up what you have. Alternatively will consider koni or bilstein setup Please let me know what you have. Thx.
  11. Would just like to ask for your opinions please..... Am replacing sway bar bracket and was just going to replace all the rubbers as well when i thought whether it would be worth replacing with the oem rubber or should i go with the polyurethane type as offered by superpro, nolathane and the like...... Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
  12. A new set of H&R lowering springs for Cayman 981 with PASM. I hadn't even opened the box before I moved the Cayman on. Price: $380 negotiable (not including freight) Cheers Tim
  13. I have a well maintained Boxster that quite suddenly started to feel very vague and sloppy in the rear end. It feels as though there is a degree of sidewards play. I also noticed that when I was parking and put it into reverase I heard a slight clunking sound. Any ideas what the problem is? Costs to fix? Thanks. Peter
