I got about 6 DE days out of my old rubber-center clutch (73,000 miles). Even when it went bye-bye, it was driveable with a gentle clutch-foot.

And I'd firm up the suspension before going with...

Dimi:

I'll take the calipers and rotors. I've always wanted a spare set of calipers to rebuild. And I'll eventually need rotors.

Seats are sold and delivered. If you get the chance to buy from / sell to Donnie, do it. And FWIW, this is the best forum for selling stuff regionally.

944 upper strut mounts - $85/pair, shipped.

I'll cover shipping to the continental US. Pics below. These are $500 parts (don't ask me why!) if bought new.

These came off a 1988 944 at 65,000 miles (camber plates installed at that time)....

I just bought a set of Hankook Ventus RS2s. They were $99 each on TireRack, and they are supposedly the same sort of tire as the Falken Avenzis (not an r-comp but sticky). I have not tried them on...

Jeebus. Delete this post. That price is KILLING my efforts to sell seats. (Or just change the price to $500!)

FS: Black leather-face seats. Excellent condition.

Wash DC area. Will ship at your cost.

They came out of my 1988 944 n/a. (I installed a pair of track seats last weekend.) The car has 72,000 miles on it, and it lived a lot of its life indoors...

Thanks. That's good info. I would love to avoid changing my torsion bars.

This raises another question. If I use the coilovers as a booster to the OEM torsion bars, I obviously cannot drop the...

Interesting. So, compared to the "Spec" package offered by Paragon ( http://www.*****************.com/product_p/944spec-3.htm ), the Escort Cup (for a bit more cash) lacks the weltmeister sway bars,...

944 is a good car for a new driver. It's really too slow (non-turbo) to get into trouble, but it certainly has "curb appeal." I also like the idea of a car that can't get stuffed full of other...

I'm trying to keep my annual investment in the car lower than what I paid for it! KWs are very nice stuff (I had V1 in my Audi A6), but I need to be a bit more economical for the 944. I've got a...

We have two drivers (wife and I) and four vehicles, and the 944 probably gets the least use. If the weather is nice, I'll take it to work one day a week (20 miles RT). It's been totally reliable...

Crazy, backward swap idea?

Anyone ever look into swapping the 2.0t VW engine into a 924/944?

Thx. I'll see if Pelican can match.

I'm hoping to achieve a balanced car with minimal understeer. The "package" has dual Weltmeister sway bars in addition to the other stuff.

I just joined PCA but have not taken advantage of their functions. I will. They get first dibs on track dates at a local track (Summit Point) which means weekends. I've done a lot with the local...

I'm picking up a full package of springs, torsion bars, sway bars, struts and bushings. Available on "the other" ecommerce site. I wonder if Pelican would match the package?

I sure hope to get there some day! But I think the wise course of action would be to assume that you are going to sell your DE car and buy a CR car when the time is right. Economically, it makes a...

I'm going to re-do the suspension on my '88 944 this Spring and need to decide what spring/bar ratings to use. The options are from 250-350 lbs. up front and 27-30mm for the torsion bars. If I max...
