    before and after pics of lowering springs, spacers

    i have a '06 997, and i'm thinking of getting lowering springs. anyone have before and after pics of their 997 w/ lowering springs and spacers? any places to recommend doing this in the LA area? cost of doing this?

    love my 997... i just feel like there's a little too much space between the body and the tire.

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    here are some pics, although i dont have any before pics, you can search for more.
    19" carrera classics with pasm.
    springs: eibach
    spacers: 7mm H&R

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    another same setup

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    kinesis f110 with 15mm spacers in the rear, net is 49mm offset in rear and 50mm in front. compared to above photos with 60 and 50mm offset respectively

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    Don't lower it too much.

    A review of the TT said they were concerned when they bottomed out a stock TT and slammed the "oil pan" of the engine onto the pavement (scratched and gouged it). WOW.


    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    edit: my springs are made by eibach for techart.
    techart lowers 15mm in S model and 25mm in non-S
    the regular eibach is much more aggressive

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    Very, very hot indeed. Lowered just right for my taste and the wheels look great; much better than the OEM wheels.

    I was at my local dealership recently and was looking at a new GT3 they had on the floor. I was amazed how much lower it looked than my 997S. Then I looked at the front spoiler and it was all scratched on the bottom edge. The sales manager said that they couldn't go out of the driveway without the car hitting the ground no matter how hard they tried. No matter what angle. I thought my 997S was low. I can't go out of my own driveway without coming to a complete stop and easing my way through it. I really can't imagine having to live with a lower car. I love the look, but it must be a pain in the rear to drive with out bottoming out on everything.

    Re: before and after pics of lowering springs, spa

    Yeah, the stock 997S, the overhang over the front tires is already loooong. I get tired of having to enter curb ramps like I have a passenger with a spinal injury.
