    997 Carrera 4 GTS Purchase (question)

    Hello everybody, this is my first post, I'm new !
    I just bought one used 997 4 gts with Pasm -10mm.
    I would like to lower it and I would like to ask if anyone can advise me if it is better to do it with official porsche springs or alternative spare parts, such as Eibach or H&R.
    Further question: the Sport Pasm -20mm package has only lowered springs or other components vs the -10mm Pasm?
    Thanks for the help, ciao


    Re: 997 Carrera 4 GTS Purchase (question)

    Welcome to the forum 

    Eibach and H&R have high quality products adapted to the 997 . I never did it on mine but I know people who used them on GT3' s , so I guess it would not be a problem on the Carrera if you get the adapted parts .

    Retrofitting the 20 mm package can be very expensive, not sure it is worth it. Stick with the 10 mm chassis and if you want to lower it further, there are various (much cheaper) possibilities. Lowering springs are a compromise though only.

    Re: 997 Carrera 4 GTS Purchase (question)

    Thank you all for informations and advices. Retrofit to Spasm, as described by Martini964, I think it will be really very expensive. Maybe I could change only the springs. I don't know if there will be a technical improvement. maybe only for the exterior view.

    p.s. How to put a pic on the profile ? tnx

    For looks only? Yes. Improvement? Not very likely, on the contrary.

    Listen, I am very often in Italy (mostly North). Are you really sure you want to lower your car further? Could be an expensive experience if you damage something...

    you also can use 18 inch wheel, but I'm not sure if then you have more choice on tires.


    Re: 997 Carrera 4 GTS Purchase (question)

    for the italian roads ? Smiley  ...  Not very likely ? or for other reasons ?

    p.s. I'm trying on edit, but up to know without results, I'll try again

    Re: 997 Carrera 4 GTS Purchase (question)

    I had a -20mm LSD 997.1 CS. I have now a -10mm PASM 997.1 C4.

    I much prefer the latter, the -20mm was too stiff all the time even on our roads which are overall ok. Also PASM still ok to stiffen in sport mode, which I do on the track or in very smooth mountain roads...

    the improvement is noticeably evident in the guide but also in comfort, even with more rigid settings.

    p.s. for me also in the look
