    Suspension Question

    Does somebody know what happens in the following case??

    When you order a base 997 with 18".and then you put on 19" wheels do you need to adjust the camper,caster settings???

    Or they are just the same??

    And when you order the base 997 with 19"-optional- from the beginning the suspension's camper,caster is altered to match the 19" wheels setup??

    My car has PASM, and i read in many articles that the 997's suspension was designed from the beginning to be based on 19" wheels, especially when equiped with the PASM suspension.

    So when i put on 19" shall i alter and adjust camper,caster?Or it has the same adjustments for both wheels setup?

    I do not want to mess with these things especially in Greece if it is not necessary...


    Your knowledge is appreciated

    Re: Suspension Question

    I believe the alignment settings for the car are not wheel size dependent. Only the shock settings would be somewhat affected, since the tire sidewall acts more like a spring when it is taller...

    Re: Suspension Question

    Actually, I think the alignment and camber/caster settings are affected by wheel size on a 911. I remember reading something that if someone fitted 19" wheels or larger on a 996, they were unknowingly throwing off the settings. The 997 is designed for 19" wheels max without affecting the settings but if you go larger, I believe you'll get results that might be unexpected.
