Do you need weight off the tires to change this out or can you drive up a ramp and change this?

It appears from John's first post and from looking at PET part lists. that:

- 996 generation. All non-GT get steel. All GT get Aluminum
- 997.1 generation. Turbo retains steel. All others, including C4S get Aluminum.
- 997.2 generation. All, including turbo, Aluminum. Same part.
- 991.1 generation. All, including turbo, Aluminum. Same part.

Draw whatever conclusions you prefer...

Does that mean that the bolded above is not accurate?

I have noticed that the $40 eBay finds are no longer. The salvage Porsche part places must be on the forums.

Or they simply noticed a 1000% increase in sales and decided to raise prices. Bummer, though, I should have jumped on it.

Damn, mines still sitting on the floor of my garage. So valuable now, anyone want to trade it for a 1976 Turbo?
