Anyone know what drop these springs would give or are there different drops depending on spring.

Lastly, the springs are off 996turbo, will these fit a 996 C4

Is yours a C4 or C4S? I think Phil is referring to C4S.

I’ve just been looking into this. I think they will physically fit, but I suspect they’ll be the wrong spring rate, because the turbo is too much heavier and perhaps has different damping characteristics.
Techart springs are made by eibach and they list different part numbers for turbo and C4S. Surprisingly it’s the same part number for C4S and C4.

You can compare part numbers here:

Ah yes they will phisically fit as they are all AWD cars but may be a tad stiffer than the ones for a 4 thats a good point Thumb but that might not be a bad thing on a non PASM car Question

I prefer soft springs and strong damping, but we're all individuals. Very Happy
