What I meant to ask is what is the minimum/maximum lowering in the front and the rear axles for the 997.1 turbo TT?

Our recommended baseline ride height for 997 Tractive coilovers is 106/128mm using OEM measuring method, with OEM size tires*. For reference this is pretty close to OEM GT3 ride height. The Tractive DDA coilovers can easily go +/-10mm from baseline. However, we don't recommend the far end of the lowering range when using the standard 313/616 because lowering will decrease available travel(stroke) of the suspension. All shocks work optimally only with sufficient travel. Any shock operating without sufficient travel for the design cannot do its job, it'll then just become a piece of metal that's along of the ride. GT3 Cup and GT3R for example use 1000+ lb springs so the travel is limited by the movement of the very heavy springs, thus they can be lowered more since the suspension travel is limited by the springs. So if you put Cup car springs on Travtive shocks then you can run Cup car ride height.

*Denote different size tires will alter the ride height. For example a 10mm taller tire will naturally make the ride height 5mm higher.

Hi Tom,

I am running the TechArt Bilstein Damptronic B16 with Nose lift. I am also using the DSC box. At the present setting (which is definitely lowered, but i don't know how much) i clear most speed bumps, barring few big ones. I would love to have an additional 5mm raised height and I would be ok. I am running stock wheels and tyres. Can you guide me as to how to measure? From the wheel hub centre to the fender edge? Any other method?

City roads and some freeways have very bad road surfaces. SO much so that at high speeds it is a back breaking drive. Hence would love to have a more compliant spring rates (but not at the cost of bottoming out) to cope with the city ride as well. I am never going to track my car. Hence i can live with a more manageable ride.
