RoW Suspension components are...

Hi Dave,

As you know Boxster owners can add the M030 Sport Suspension to their Porsches if they didn't get it from the factory.

It's possible to get the RoW (Rest of World) M030 suspension kit (or individual components). And if you already have the M030 Sport Suspension then you can get the RoW Springs which will lower your Boxster to the height of Porsche Boxster sold outside of North America.

The RoW M030 springs will lower the car 20mm in the front and 10mm in the rear.

All these parts listed listed below are 986 RoW M030 parts.

About the M030 Sport Suspension Package -
The M030 has different parts from the standard suspension:
* Special shocks for the front
* Special shocks for the rear
* Special springs for the front
* Special springs for the rear
* Bigger stabilizer bar for the front
* Bushes (mountings) for the bigger front bar
* Bigger stabilizer bar for the rear
* Bushes (mountings) for the bigger rear bar

If the US built 986 has the M030 sport suspension as an option:
* The car already has the M030 shocks and bigger bars and it has the US M030 springs.
* To lower the car you just need to change the springs to RoW M030 springs.
* The springs you need depend of the type of 986.
* The front's are the same for all 986 : part# 986.343.531.11 504 (Springs set front)
* The rears depend on the type of 986.
If the car in question is a 5 speed, then you need part# 986.333.531.11 504 (Springs set 5 speed)

If you want more information e-mail me - we offer all these at a discount.

I have H&R Sport Springs on my 2000 Boxster S and they've lowered the car about 1.3" which would be a lot for you based on your comments. It sounds like the Porsche M030 Springs would be best for you.
