Hi
I'm after some lowering springs for my 944. Would consider anything.

I'd rather 20mm over 30mm drop, which leads me to believe 968CS springs or H&R springs (which don't seem to be available anymore). If anyone has any for sale or even any info on the H&R springs/part numbers etc, or even if the 968CS springs are ok with the early 944. that would be great,
Cheers

Depends on the year

Post 85.5 cars have different size spring perches to early cars

CS springs are available direct from Porsche

Your other option is a set of coil overs

My Car is an 84 so I guess that rules out the 968 springs anyway? And probably the H&R springs even if I can get hold of some. Its strange because a lot of the springs advertised seem to suggest they can run on any 944 which must not be the case.

I have coilers in my s2000 but don't want to go that route with this car. Keen to keep it very close to original but with a little tweaking. Might have to trim a little off the springs to take the 20mm off and see how it drives.
