Are you sure about that? Do CL and 5 lug rims have the same wheel offsets? If they dont, then yes it does have an impact.

I do not suggest HR springs or KW has kit. Ive had both. One was way too soft and slammed the car. The KW HAS kit was nice. But very firm and rebound was too firm for my liking. I felt my car was planted MUCH better in stock form at HIGH speeds. Sure it cornered better daily driving with either of those solutions. But track speed wise, I felt the car handled worse!

Id either buy proper coil over setup (not a sleeve kit that slams your stock struts) or keep it stock in my opinion.

I am going to be making a decision for this in near future. Other than the Bilstein PSS10, who else makes a PASM/SPASM compatible coilover that keeps the electronics?

Did anyone resolve the issue of CL’s and the HAS kit?

KW call out on the website “NOT FOR CL” wheels on the 991.2. Speculation is that the wheel offsets may result in contact between the wheel/tire and HAS kit. I dont recall anyone reporting that they had successfully installed on a 991.2 with CLs. Thanks

Ah sorry about that. I could have sworn I saw someone a thread on here where has them on a CL GTS and said it was a non issue and KW was wrong.

I recall a similar post where someone with a .1 GTS w/CLs installed the kit. I have been keeping my eyes open for someone reporting that they fit a .2 GTS w/CL’s. If you happen to find the post I would be very happy to be proven wrong. Thanks
