Can someone please post the ride height changes with Eibach and H&R? I want to fit one finger between tire/ fender. Any pics of each?

Thanks!!

Tech Art lowering springs leave about a finger. I think this is the same height as Eibach. H&R drop another 1/2 inch or so lower from what I understand.

This is the best post I've seen on the topic:

My Tech Art measurements rear first, and then front...

Tires rubbing can cause serious damage to your drive line.
I'll never understand why people chose how something looks to how it works.

In this case it looks better and works better so why not? No rubbing here ever.

No tire rubbing here ever. I won't compromise my car function for looks under any circumstance. With this mod there is zero impact on function from OEM.

I just picked up a 2009 Carrera that has been lowered with H&R springs and has spacers installed. I am getting rubbing when even crawling over speed bumps of any size and when entering a driveway with any slope to it. Am I correct to assume that if the car is set up properly, even with lowering springs, rubbing shouldn't be an issue? I am running 8x19 Carrera S wheels ( 57 offset ) with 7mm spacers for my summers. After mounting my winters, 8.5x19 Carrera Sport wheels ( 55 offset ) the problem was even more pronounced. Any ideas?

Now for a 1M dollar question. What is the big difference between a 997 Turbo PASM and a regular 997 PASM?
This is Rennlist, ask and you shall be answered........

997 PASM runs 33 n/mm (188 lbs/in) front and 56 n/mm (320 lbs/in) rear
997.1 Turbo PASM runs 36 n/mm (206 lbs/in) front and 80 n/mm (457 lbs/in) rear
997.2 Turbo PASM runs 36 n/mm (206 lbs/in) front and progressive 60 - 90 n/mm (343 - 514 lbs/in) rear

Iíve had three 997 variants all lowered with H&Rís and all with PASM. No issues ever. No harsh ride, rubbing, sagging or harsh ride. I would not consider H&Rís slammed.


An alignment is necessary and I do a street alignment vs track. Not as aggressive but gives longer tire wear. My local Porsche dealer recommends H&R over Eibach. Ride height is perfect for me. Eibach will give you a slightly higher ride height. Really depends on your preference.
