New Suspension together

Long time... no motiviation... no update.

After meeting with iamchappy (Dave Chapman) today, I finished "assembling" the bits and pieces of the front suspension and did a mock setup in the climate cooled garage (i.e., kitchen)

Old suspension - stock '89 911 Carrera front end, Carrera brakes, stock Bilstein inserts, stock 19mm torsion bars, stock tierods, stock bushings, stock camber plates, dirty




NEW front suspension...

Monoblock Brembo brakes, new rotors, bearings, Bilstein sport strut inserts, Turbo tierods with ERP bump steer ends, 22mm torsion bars, needle bearing bushings, Weltmeister adjustable camber plates, rotor cooling brake ducts and block-off plates, rebuilt steering rack, everthing powdercoated, new hardware.
