Didn't the GTS have some sort of supersport option as standard which was lower still?


The "PASM sports chassis (- 20 mm) with limited slip rear differential lock" was an option on the GTS.

Which makes it 10mm lower the standard PASM chassis then I think which is 10mm lower than standard. So the "sports" springs could be an option for us in warranty then.

Techart are fine for gen2 but make sure you get the ones for the Awd 4S as the rear springs are bigger the the ones for the 2S Thumb Targa option should be listed if its different to the non targa cars

MMM what you have just described you need the DSC pasm upgrade module
theres a long thread on here about a group buy a few months ago , they are not cheap but totally transform the suspension . have a read of the thread and the link before deciding what to do next . I really like the way it makes my car feel subtle but how it should have come from the factory

I've had the springs fitted for a while now, no different to OEM in my eyes.

Mix of British and European roads over the last 1000 miles or so.

hi all, after a long time i've finally got around to getting my car booked in to have the techart springs installed. My Indy has just phoned me to say the front springs are considerably bigger compared to the stock spring they have removed from the car, and so he's asked if it's possible i have the wrong ones. Are there more than one type for PASM/Non PASM cars etc?. Mine is a gen 2 C2S. I'm hoping the size difference is just down to the spring rates but he made it sound like the difference was significant, so i just want to check if its possible i've got the wrong ones. Anyone else notice this?. I bought them via the group buy on this thread (some time ago now). Thanks!

Is your 997 a PASM or non? Also check your receipt what springs you paid for!! I still havent fitted mine, still in box chucked in the garage somewhere and to be honest i have seen them since the group buy.. but check.. what is your part number, can cross reference online..

Cheers

This thread just reminded me there’s a box in my garage attic with my springs from the group buy! Rolling Eyes

Anyway, just checked the invoice and the part number corresponds with my model/year.

If it’s of any use I checked here: http://www.techart-shop.de/techart-young-classics/997-carrera/fahrwerk/242/federnsatz-097-carrera-4/4s-coupe/cabriolet.

Thanks all. Seems we have all been sitting on them for a while lol.

I can’t find the receipt but the box serial number checks out, my Indy is going ahead with it and will let me know if things don’t look right. Will post a pic here when done in case anyone is interested.

PASM car btw
