Can i ask what is the standard ride height for a C2 and also how many ride heights are there if I decide to lower the car. Reason beings is am liking to overhaul my suspension and without going too low cos of speed bumps etc... don't want to be I using old springs on new shocks..

Cheers

Porsche gave the MO30 kit a -20mm drop, but -25mm looks better still imo and won't give any clearance issues as far as I know.

Only if you have mo30 suspension fitted.

Mine has 'sports chassis' which was a free option to replace the pasm with mo30 suspension and a LSD. Not sure if it is straight forward to just swap out springs on a pasm suspension car. Assume it is.

I have PASM on my car but no MO30 kit, I guess if I were to get Bilsteins all round I'll be getting a set of H&R springs to match but need to avoid lowering and if I do it will have to be the least drop as the speed bumps around where I am is bloody ridiculous..

It's why I was asking what the factory spring drop would be so from there I can work out what would be the best bet for me etc...

Cheers
