Windymiller Posted December 6, 2017 Share Posted December 6, 2017 (edited) Hi all, i think I have a rear RHS shock on its way out, the wheel arch gap is 5-10mm less than on the LHS, so I’m assuming the shock is ‘deflating’, perhaps weeping out oil? If that’s the case and I’m looking to replace a pair of rear shocks just wondering if I should stick with the OEM option (which i understand is actually BILSTEIN B4s), or ‘upgrade’ to the B6 ‘sports’ (if I can accept their bright canary yellowness)? Would I need to change the springs too? I don’t want to change the fronts as well, until they actually need doing (I’m assumig sometime in the next year if the rears are on their way out now) - but would mixing OEM B4s front with B6s rear create handling issues? And no, a £2k+ total suspension upgrade is not an option.... I have non-PASM on a 987S with 19” rims and find it a good blend of reasonable ride comfort on pot-holed poor-surfaced Bucks roads, very comfy on smooth motorways/major A roads, but also perfectly good handling on twisty Bs. I suspect next March’s Oulton Park Trackday will highlight the limitations of (me! ??) and the standard suspension, but the car is a (short trip) daily driver more than a weekend track toy (currently at least). Perhaps I should stick with B4s for now and then upgrade the lot as/when the CS becomes a summer wknd toy only...? Think I’ve answered my own question there, but thanks all for ‘listening’ - it’s like therapy, only cheaper.... ????
