This is awesome! Thank you for providing this service. It's baffling that Porsche won't make these anymore.

P.S. Will your part come with a made in Germany sticker...

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the benefit of these besides being able to lower a car below RS heights (which is crazy for a street car) ?

I don't think it's specifically to help go BELOW RS height. I believe bump-steer gets introduced before you even reach RS height.

My car is currently at RS height (but without these uprights), which I don't consider aggressive for the street. I don't have any scraping issues getting into driveways etc.

I'm in on a set.
I just had this exact conversation with Elephant racing 5 weeks back when I was trying to order a set for my 993 build, was told no eta. Back order production for 16 months. I then asked why doesn't someone machine their own and he said they've talked about it but no dice. Really glad to see you guys pulling the trigger on manufacturing these.

here's the stock curves for the front of a 964/993 at RoW ride height

Bump steer is the red toe curve
I deal would be a vertical line
you can se that at Row height the toe curve is already well beyond vertical, you can also see that @ US height the curve is approaching vertical.

For each incremental change in the wheel height do to vehicle dynamics ie when the body rolls in a corner there is a fairly large toe delta due to the flattening curve. The compressed side toes out while the droop side toes in. The compressed or loaded side is the one that you care about. The extra toe out on the loaded side makes the driver add additional steering input to turn.

The RS wheel carriers move the entire red line up by ~20mm this places the the more vertical section of the toe curve back around where it would be at US height, ie near vertical.


There will be toe change due to roll at any height, all you can do is minimize it.

Bill that explains why I felt such a drastic difference with my RS carriers at just below ROW height. Thanks!
