Yes there are and plenty of them. What is your need? How much do you wish to invest?

My early 944 race car has adjustable camber plates, mono balls, stiff coil overs in front, 30mm torsion bars in back, upgraded sway bars, yada, yada. It's all available for early cars, too.

Just remember if this is to be raced check the rules on what is allowed.

I have yet to find any coil-overs that will fit pre-87. Can anyone suggest a place that sells them if any?

All the racers around here use Ground Control stuff setup by Fordahl motorsports (fordahlmotorsports.com) Dantilla's is from Fordahls I think.

Coilovers.....usually are used w/o torsion bars. Are you dropping the Tbars?
or...

Are you actually meaning the coilover in addition to the Tbars? Why?....Because there are 2 types, both are coilover in appearance but differ in spring rate/size. Are you not actually asking for "helper springs"? This is what is used in addition to torsion bar. Also called "spring assists".

If you want full coilovers prepare to shovel out the cash and if not a race car, not even worth it!

Check Paragon for these coilovers/helper spring sets.
