Smile WTB M030 bars & springs, etc

I have '87 944T, currently equipped with:

Weltmeister 28mm front, 25mm rear stabilizer bars,
600 lb/in front springs, 200/lb rear coil-over aux springs
Koni adjustable coil/over front & rear

This set-up is NOT comfortable for my intended mix of driving, 90% street & highway, 10% driver education or track touring days. I would like to "soften it up a bit"

I am a 944T newbie and have been advised to re-fit the car with M030 spec suspension, all or part. I will pay reasonable cash via PayPal for same shipped to 84047.

Anything else I should check out? Are there other set-ups that would suit my use? When accomplished the Weltmeister bars and the stiff springs will be for sale.

Thanks for any help

I just parted an '89 951 with M030 suspension. I'd be interested in seeing what you've got installed on your car.

Well, in addition to my initial description, I could add that the springs are Eibach, I don't know their unloaded length as they are still installed. I do not know the diameter of rear torsion bars, for the same reason. The Koni's are yellow, with coil over adjusters, and adjustable damping. I'll know more when I get the car up on jacks, and get the heavy duty parts removed. I was hoping to to do that after I have purchased the M030 parts to replace the Weltmeister's, etc. At this point I am planning softer springs, thinner bars, and adjusting the shocks to a milder setting. The car is on 16" wheels, w/Yokohama AVS street tires.

There are numerous other performance mods to motor, turbo, brakes, etc. The previous owner described the suspension set-up spec as "Porsche Turbo-Cup" I do not know if that is really the case, or just sales bravado. Like I say, I'm a newbie to 944T's. I do have mechanical experience & skills, including former SCCA Club racing, Mazdas, Formula Ford, and more, and also have some flying and aviation in my background, so can appreciate your approach to mechanics, as stated on your website.

What else would you like to know?

More questions: I have read that the M030 bars are 26.5 mm front, 19mm rear, is that accurate? Will they fit my '87 944T? Do you have the necessary mounting brackets, bushings, bolts, etc to mount the M030 stabilizer bars to my car, Will any of the bushings or other need replacement? Finally, how much shipped to Salt Lake City, zip 84047.

Do you have any suggestions as to how I might proceed turning this car into less of a track car, to a more comfortable compromise between fair weather street & touring, and occassional track events etc?

Thanks,

Why not just get some 150-175lb springs, and swap out the rear coilovers for some regular shocks? Replace the Welts with some stock or M030 sway bars (Won't add to stiffness) and be on your way....

That should be good enough for street and track, at minimal effort and cost.

Cheers, Keith
