Wink My butt...

The butt of my car sags. I think it' sjust a suspension thing...can I adjust it so that it doesn't sag?

Do you have Koni's

The stock suspension setup doesn't lend it self to too much adjustment

Most likely, your shocks are just worn and need replacing.

I don't think I have koni's. Wow, more suspension work to be done. we'll just add my car onto the list (my friends and I are doing 3 cars tonight, 2 Mazda MX-6s and a Ford Probe. It's just a shame only one of the MX-6's actually got good stuff...the other two kids got junk.)

duh!!!!!!
shocks may assist in height but the situation is from weak or out of adjustment torsion bars. the shocks only control the bounce, height is controlled by the springs and leaning is the swaybars.

and if you have the proper tools there is a adjustment that can be done pretty easily under the rear.

This is true, you probably just need to adjust the rear arm eccentric bolt.

Somewhere there is an article on this, with pictures.

....uhmmm how the torsion got out of adjustment would be interesting to know.... and also as far as i know there are no springs on the 944... i am assuming you meant the torsion bar? My old mercury bobcat had some beautifull leaf springs ............

What AF said is true...if nothing else has been changed.... the rear shocks will cause the rear end to sag somewhat... start at the easiest.

1. shocks..... should be easy to check...
2. torsion bar...you better know what you are doing.
3. eccentric bolt.... only minor adjustments can be made..

but if you wish to adjust ....

yes, you assumed correctly. althou,
i think;
1 shocks
2 eccentric
3 reindexing bars
youd be surprissed how much adjustment there is from 1 end/stop to the other.

I always knew 911's had a big rearend. And I love 944's for thier hourglass shape. But Geeze, if my 944 started to go saggy I'd throw her away and take the big-bottomed babe!

P.S. I'm drunk, hope that explains a few things
