Default NEED TO BORROW: 944 suspension to transport race car

As some of you may know - PPo has recruited me onto his endurance race team for this year and we're busily rebuilding the car for an action-packed season.

Our trick (totally legal!) suspension has to go back to the UK for a refurb - and in the meantime - we need to move the car around for other work.

Does anyone have 944 suspension bits we can borrow to make the car mobile? We will NOT be abusing this suspension - just need something that lets us move the car around for a few weeks.

I'll come pick up whatever you've got anytime - any place.

Thanks is advance for helping us get ready for the season!

CT had car wheel dollies on sale a few weeks ago, maybe they still do. You guys could make a 4X4 frame and use these dollies until it comes back from the UK. THEN, you can use just the wheel dollies to move the car around in the shop/garage. They are the foot pump ones with good quality casters and are awesome! Were on sail for $200/pair.

Thanks for ideas and q, guys!

Need to be 944 stuff - 87 or later.

Need to do more than move it around the shop - needs to go on trailer to another shop etc.

JUST need struts/springs. Have A arms, rear sub-frame etc - that's all in place.

Thanks for any help!

If all you need are struts/springs to roll it on and off a trailer then make something from a few 4X4.
