Find a wrecked 959 Sport.

Or, have Bell make one for you. Like I noted earlier, they have 6" thick cores. Those look close to the dimensions I guessed at.

Find out in the 11th hour that the machine shop hasn't located any galley plugs. DAMM !! I can't believe that it took me 4 hours to track them down. The cam towers #90110537900 on the shelf at Stooddards. mains galley plugs are a 964# got that info from old Porsche machinist. Stoddard is the only ones to bother with us vintage car owners, besides PP but some of Wayne's salesmen are as dumb as a bag of rocks about cars.

Just ordered some Pirelli's for Cristine, 345\35\15s & 225\50\15s. I tried these once before, with old rubber bushing and torsion bars. With all the suspension changes they'll work alot better. The Yokies have been great but there aren't any, and the backs aren't quit wide enough.

Nice to hear things are coming along.

You are going to be amazed at the difference. I just replaced all the bushings in my SC, along with raised front RSR front spindles, new torsions, bearings... she is like a new car.

Are you going to stay with stock torsions, go larger, or going to put some cool stuff in like 935 spring plates and coilovers? After tracking my turbo at Turbopalooza, i now realize that i have more motor than suspension, and need to seriously upgrade a lot of stuff. I have a suspicion you are going to be in the same situation with the new power from your motor. U may want to think about upgrading suspension components now while she's apart and and you are twiddling your thumbs waiting for the motor.

Shes had coil-overs on her for 3 years and poly-bronze bushings. Just doing rear mono balls& bearings. I've never ran the Pirell's with the up-graded suspension. She's been on Yokies since then.

A man after my own heart post pics when you mount them up, there's nothing cooler than huge rear rubber.

Glad to hear the coils are working for you well - I know that on mine they definately helped a ton with some of the common handling issues i've read about.

Cristine before suspension change with Pirell's Ended up with to much neg. camber and toe out squat under power. Wore the tires out in 5,000 miles.

Tire rack suggests 13.5" max rim width for these.

That's the same recommendation on mine for the Corsa's I put on there and on my 13.5" wide rim I could probably go to a 14" without much fitment issue. I'd assume the same for these but we'd have to see when the get installed on the rims.

Sweet. I now have a street compound tire for my 914/6 which has 14" rears.
