Default Double wishbone suspension for the 944/968 ?

There was someone from either this board or maybe Pelican that was working on an unequal length double A arm front suspension on either a 944 or a 968. I don't remember many details other than that the FR-S lower control arm was a practical bolt on for the front pivot points.

Have run a couple searches but haven't come up with anything, curious if the project progressed and how the rear suspension was addressed.

Sounds like a job for a tubed tub, if you want to go that far.

Mac struts are fine for 99% of potential driving... Even the 997 racers still use it.

The rear end is where you'd want to focus your multilink efforts.

It might be just me but I bet if you crawl under a 928 and stare at a few minutes, ideas will happen... Bruce

Look up posts from Tony G, Thingo, Duke...they're all 944 chassis with converted suspension. Bring your wallets with you!

This is the one, attempt was to use IS-F parts not FR-S.

Rennlist's search did not turn this up, had to site search using google.
