    Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    Has anyone installed the -20mm suspension springs on their 997S with PASM? Are the -20mm euro springs actually lower compared to the PASM springs? I'm seriously thinking of removing the H&Rs.

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    I believe that if you order the car with -20mm suspension, you forgo the PASM, not sure tho.

    Correct

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    What I'm saying is, can the springs from the -20mm suspension fit on to the PASM shocks/struts and at the same time lower the car? We have no option of chosing the euro suspension here in the states, and this maybe a solution for lowing our PASM equipped cars without going aftermarket.

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    I don't think it is possible...

    Springs and shock absorbers have to be carefully matched to the proper rates. I think you may have a problem in the standard mode of PASM which is alot softer than the shocks on the -20mm suspension. I think the springs need to be a bit softer for PASM (between the standard and sport modes). -20mm is closer to the Sport setting on PASM...

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    loday22, Why do you want to swap out the H&R? Is it too low? too harsh?

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    Yes, the H&Rs springs are pretty harsh. Normal mode on PASM feels very bouncy on bumpy roads. I'm hopefully the euro -20mm springs would work and also lower the car a little, or my only alternative is to wait for Bilstein PASM coilovers.

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    My dealer takes only springs from Techart to lower PASM cars. Drove such a car the other day and I must say that the ride was more comfortable in the standart mode than my
    -20 mm chassis, however, in sport mode the ride was very bumpy and not as harmonically as my car.

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    Thanks loday22, maybe you should try TechArt, It only lower 15mm and not as harsh as H&R (H&R lower by 30mm).

    Re: Factory -20mm springs on PASM

    The Techart website only indicates sport spring that drop the car by 25mm. Does anybody have any other information about these springs that only drop by 15mm?
