That's horrible. I wish you the best of luck getting your 911 back on the road.

Alright it sounds like some of you have purchased these. Where are the reviews?

I thought I read that the rears re-used the OEM top mounts. Now I see they are pillow ball. Can OEM mounts be re-fitted?

Message sent. If I introduced more NVH into the cabin, I might as well take the front passenger seat out. I would be driving alone for the most part.

I haven't received my coilovers yet. I'll be putting together a review once my setup arrives and I have a chance to install them.

I am interested. Have a 99 996 Cab with stock shocks and h&r springs. I like the lower ride height but the whole setup is aging and needs a replacement. What set should I consider for Street use only and a weekend car. No track.

What are the differences between the Novak and the 172? I read the description and it appears the Novak has more height adjustability which points to different parts between the two. It does mention that the Novak still has the 172 features like adjustable camber but what parts are different?

thanks for the attention.

For you, you’d probably be perfectly happy with the Novak. Opt for the Eibach springs if you want a dash of color and about 2lbs of weight savings overall.
I may have missed it, but could you elaborate on where both are made?

couple questions before I pull the trigger that will help me, and maybe other get more comfortable:
- How long has Raceworks been in business, in MD and how long has the product been on the market?
- Units sold worldwide are in the hundred, thousands, or tens of thousands?
- Estimated number or % of major failures in the units (not including cosmetic stuff)
- Can you describe the testing process involved, if any for each until before shipping?
- where are the parts manufactured?

Thanks for the quick and detailed reply. ok, I'll give the Novak a go. In regards to the Eibach's, those are also suitable for street application?

Not in the budget right now, but have been following this thread and I'm really impressed by the replies from Raceworks. Looking forward to reading about some installs from the folks who were able to order them!
