Turbo S parts

What all is required to install Turbo S front shocks on my 86 951?

What about brake calipers?

A 1/2" ratchet, 17 & 19 mm sockets and wrenches, an extension, a 3/8 ratchet with a 13mm socket and extension, a jack, 2 jackstands and some elbow grease........=))

You will need the S springs and perches with the struts.

You will not touch the calipers.

They are a direct bolt-on, it takes an hour tops.

Make sure you gat an alignment after the swap though.

Best of luck !!

I did this exact conversion to my 87, Turbo S coilovers.

951Carter is correct, this is a piece of cake! I did coilovers all around and its the single best performance upgrade I have done to my 951. Some of those "rice boys" may be able to beat you in a striaght line, but a 951 with a good suspension can get them on the track everytime.

ScottR,
Did you remove or re-index the torsion bars?
What type of rear coilovers did you install?

Just what I wanted to hear!

What about the Turbo S calipers? I don't think they will bolt right up, so what else do I need?

At first I just put the rear coilovers on, then after posting the install procedure, AfJuvat told me to remove the rear torsion bars. So I did, It's great! And ride height is much easier to adjust via the coilover, then it was using the old eccentric bolts

As for the S2 brake calipers, depending on your year they will bolt in. 87' 951's had the larger offset spindals for ABS. So 87' and up will work fine. Otherwise you'll need the spindals and control arms from a newwer 944.
