    Eibach Sport springs on my 991 S

    Hi Guys ,

    I think the car is now " OK" , now is perfect.

    I used in my 2 former 997 S only H&R springs ( by Cargraphic) but I think H&R springs are too "hard" for standard adsorbers , I spoke with someone who knows good the differences about spring factory and he told me to buy Eibach.

    the car is lowered about 2.5 cm ( I need to do 1000 km to know the real lowering) but it's good , not much "tuning" and very close lo original Porsche -20 .

    He fixed the spings and we looked at 991 "private parts" SmileySmileySmileySmiley

    he told me that the car is easier to work from 997 .... but we looked the silent block ( specially on the back side) , they are bigger .... better for comfort ,but not very good for handing .

    but this 991 S is not a Gt3 or a Cup car , for a funny Nurburgring Trackday and 99% public roads  is perfect .

    I don't like very much the new electric steering "feeling" , we do some arrangements to Camber ( now -2  in front , in 991 you can have more camber ) , and a little be in the rear , now the car has a good steering ( I need more km to have the feeling with the front axle) 

    H&R springs were too hard and the car ( without good adsorbs)and the car jumps , with Eibach the car is good for street use , for track/hard public roads use is softer ( specially in the back ) . 

    the best solution could be new bigger stabis , but I think that tuned stabi like H&R / Eibach does the car too hard for the city ( I live in Bologna , ad old town with old streets) , or I could try the original Porsche -20 stabi .... don't know now.

    I put my former 997S spacers , 7 mm with titan screws , now the tires are very close to the body , I like them.

    next ( and last) step , Pagid Blue pads , I always use on my formers porsche ( 2 997S and 997 Gt3) performance pads , The car with original pads brakes "long" , for touring the best are Blue , green only for racing and if they are cold ,they whistle....

    Thanks . Very interesting.

    About the Pagid blue. Don't they make noise when driving in the city and not going on the track ? ( not braking hard )

    I always wanted to put some on, but I have always been told that they are not nice when used as a daily driver because they squeek

    Hi Gnil .

    the Pagid Green ( original Porsche Motorsport equip for cup cars for sprints) squeek a lot during normal city driving 

    also Pagid yellow ( for Endurance) squeek 

    the Pagid Blu are used for rallies , hill races , etc and they became warm immediately , so they doesn't squeek.

    consider that I had Pagid blu on me former 997S.2 cabrio , I did with the same set more than 60.000 km , but no track activity ( only 2 times on Nurburgring but I didn't  drive aggressive) 

    My former Porsche team has something liquid to put on the pad compound for sqeek , but it doesn't work well.

    if you do a good bedding at first km , they no squeek

    Ok . I will try them , as my Porsche pads last max 20'000 km  and I am not so satisfied with the braking power.

    My 997.1 braked better then my 997.2 PDK

    Re: Eibach Sport springs on my 991 S

    I am interested too, but, are these pagid blue Porsche-approved or do they void the used car guarantee ?


    Re: Eibach Sport springs on my 991 S

    Looks fantastic, and very well-chosen upgrades imo!


    Re: Eibach Sport springs on my 991 S

    Grazie for pictures and info. I use Pagid yellow on my 997.

    Have always been very fond of "la Grassa" (had a few friends living there)...
