    WTB - Porsche 996 GT2 or GT3 - Coilovers

    Want to buy coilover set 500-550ish front spring to 700-750ish rear spring, 52 mm shocks to fit GT2 rear wheel drive conversion of a Porsche 996 Turbo S which I rogered on a dyno last week.

    We have the parts for the rest of the mod including rotors etc to fit

    Looking at Bilstein quality or lower..... good used condition is fine

    Not going to be too easy for that price.

    You may want to look into a nice new coilover setup.

    I didn't mention price... those are the spring rates we want

    sorry for the confusion

    spring rate 500-550 front
    spring rate 700-750 back

    looking at coilovers but had to speak to / email several dealers to confirm correct sizes on GT2 coilovers as most just sell the normal Turbo size 55mm and assume they fit GT2 as well...

    of course none of the dealers have called or emailed me back

    Garth has had a few P-cars through the shop, so I'm sure he's familiar with lots of the various mod options. For the GT2 I'd look for brands like JRZ & Ohlins since they're higher quality and most likely have a product more tailored to the GT2 setup.

    Thx, yeah I know of Garth etc... was looking at some custom springs to get exactly the spec but may just leave it RWD with stock suspension until end of summer... looked at Bilsteins etc but the spec is weird

    Main problem isn't brands as I know the Ohlins, Bilstein etc, it is the websites and dealers that sell them claiming they are the size for GT2 or GT3 but are really for the Turbo set up.. anyway, will wait and see what the Bilstein dealers come back and tell me

    Try calling some of the shops that actually have race experience & sell the stuff -- GMG Racing, BBi & Sharkwerks could at least steer you in the right direction

    Looks like I will try the Ohlins, get good reviews across the board, reasonable set up for a direct GT3/GT2 size

    Hey! I saw you post that you were looking for a set of coilovers and I was hoping I can help you source some. Also, what is you current engine setup? Thanks! I look forward to working with you.
