I'm interested in a set. Any chance for black? I really don't like bling.

Just got mine - beautiful, and feel like they will last the rest of the life of the car. Best $100 I spent on my 993, and I may not install them right away. I spent $400 each on A arms 85K miles ago.

Wow.. I'm so on this!!!

I've had a little wander in mine and at 110,000 miles if they are not shot, I'm sure it's coming soon. It sounds like replacements for the rears (are there about 100 of them back there with all those upper, lower and kinematic arms) are on the planing board. Any idea when those might make their way into production?

I'm down for a set as well. I'll send a PM!!

Chris, do you expect to have these available for the long term, or would a wise man snap up a set while the press is hot?

I can't speak for Chris but when I see parts like this made by an enthusiast I tend to buy them even if I'm not going to use them immediately, they won't really get stale :-)

(and in my case I need 'em!)

Could someone please email me the DIY instructions at [email protected]...I would like to install mine this weekend. Have emailed Chris, but have not received the instructions yet.

Thanks in advance

Got them in the car today. Chris sent me his exchange arms with the bushings already installed, so it was about an hour for the first one and 10 min for the other side. I'm sending him back my cores Monday for whoever's next in line.

Took it for a quick spin and the difference is amazing. The "brake" shudder is gone, and the steering feels much more direct. Never having driven a new 993, I can't compare, but it's a huge upgrade from my 75k mile old bushings.

Ride quality is only slightly changed--maybe a tiny bit more gets through on potholes, but you'd have to be really feeling for it to notice.

Installation was easy. A couple of notes from one amateur to others:

- Set the jackstands at least as high as your torque wrench is long.
- When installing the arms, you have to get the bolt next to the ball joint into the hole in the wishbone before you wrestle the inside pivots into place. Get everything finger tight, then install the caster eccentric while there's still plenty of play.
- There are two M12 lock nuts--one for the rear inside pivot and one for the bolt next to the ball joint. What's weird is, one of them takes a 17mm wrench and one is much beefier and takes a 19mm wrench. I lost track of which is which, but given the torque specs and how bad things would be if it loosened, I put the bigger one by the ball joint.

Anyway--thanks, Chris!
