So rapidly approaching a year into ownership and still loving the car. Not much that I have a desire to change as I was quite lucky with the spec. The one thing I didn’t realise until a few weeks into ownership & clearly a gap in my pre buying research is that PASM equipped cars sit 10mm lower. Mine doesn’t have PASM, is on 19” Carrera S II alloys but don’t like the gaps round the wheel arches. PASM equipped cars sit better & I love how the R sits. I don’t have a big budget for this which rules out B16 PSS9’s or other coil overs so leaning more towards springs only. H&R, Eibach. I’m doing it more for cosmetics so doesn’t need to be track focused and also keen for it not to look too low as I don’t want it to appear modified. The image below shows how obvious the gap is (to me at least) I would be grateful if anyone has any experience of the springs I’ve mentioned or can recommend where to get the work done and the geometry reset post lowering or rough cost for the work. Still under Porsche warranty, so may wait. Loving everying else about the car Thanks in advance. Nik
Hi all, Looking for some advice regarding the subject of lowering... I have lowered previous cars for aesthetics rather than performance, however I find my non-PASM 987.2 a little "nose-divey" in moderate speed corners. I have found a set of H&R lowering springs on Euro Car Parts (ECP) at a steal (http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Porsche_Cayman_2.9_2011/p/car-parts/suspension/suspension-and-steering/lowering-spring/?981339871&1&6313264ad6c37672e27f33f80a1bb3e7a15f603c&000559) using my registration number to search their parts catalogue. Is it purely a coincidence that the part number starts with "981" or is there more to it? I have researched the H&R M030 -10mm kit which seems to be applicable to the 986 chassis too, so hopefully it is just a coincidence rather than a mistake on ECP's search tool... Will this set fit? Can anyone else recommend a product for the 987? Regards, Greg.
