Lennym1984 Posted October 12, 2020 Share Posted October 12, 2020 I can't remember who asked but I said that I would share my thoughts once I had fitted the Cayman R springs and Bilstein B8s to my 987 2.7. So here goes... First off it is worth me pointing out a few things: 1. My old springs/shocks had 100k on them and so probably aren't a great benchmark 2. At the same time as installing the shocks/springs, I changed all of the rear arms (with polybushed coffin arms to match the front) 3. I am yet to have the car properly aligned (the ramp at my local place needs new software and my backup has closed permanently due to COVID). I 'stringed' it at home and so the alignment is 'in the ballpark' but not great. I'm also running more than stock camber on the front (~-1.5/1.6) Nonetheless, first impressions are that it is a very well matched setup. The damping of the B8s seems to work well with the spring rates and the car seems to handle the rutted and broken roads near me (West Oxfordshire) much more confidently. Obviously it feels stiffer but the better damping characteristics make the car feel less jarring/brittle - It's a noticeable improvement over stock. I haven't got another track day until early December but I'll update my feedback after that (with the caveat that this setup is still a road car setup and so won't really be comparable to something like a set of Nitrons on the track!)
