Default 993 M030 springs on a 964

Hi friends,

I am looking into upgrading the stock (and old) suspension setup that I have on my 1993 cab. It has 80k miles and it sits too high for my taste. There's a set of 993 M030 springs for sale and I was wondering if it would be possible to pair them with the usual Bilstein HD? Essentially an alternative to H&R that might be too low.

You'll agree that it would benefit from a tiny bit of lowering.




Thanks!

993 shocks are ~2" too short for the 964.

You can look at the 964 M030 as another option but the prices are significantly higher than the H&R unless you happen upon a used set. That will get you about an inch lower all the way around.

Ok thanks, I won't buy them and might look for 964 M030. Everyone raves about the H&R but I still need to confirm that it won't loo too low on a cab.

That’s only partially true. Ride height is set by adjusting the height collar on you coilovers, Bilsteins.

I have Bilsteins and H&R red turbo springs on my cabrio. After some adjustments I got the stance just perfect and it rides just right. The H&R greens are a little softer than the reds. For a streetable combo you can’t go wrong with Bilstein and H&R springs. As for rubbing you just need to make sure you have the proper offsets on your wheels.

I will have a set of M030 springs and Bilsteins available in about a month. PM me.

<ack!> Sorry.. 993s are too short. And I can't delete this message. Nevermind.
