Porsche 911 - Classic, Historic & Safari
Precise Hydraulic Damping
Low seal friction together with high flow hydraulics has given us a damping system that dissipates energy from the first millimeter of movement.
Our dampers use the largest diameter damper possible, allowing for powerful low speed damping.
Rebound hydraulics give instant wheel release/drop out, but still retains control over the tyre movement.
Adjustment is coupled to a temperature control valve to ensure consistency throughout the entire damping range, even through the toughest of conditions.
All our new Porsche struts feature new forged uprights (unless specified or requested). We are also able to adapt donor uprights if necessary.
Struts are available in two different configurations:
- Inverted damper and outer tube guidance system
Allows for greater strength and reliability.
- Non-inverted ‘mono-tube’ design
Features an Aluminium cover to protect the damper spindle. For competition use
Mono-tube / single tube design.
Available with metal or rubber guard for spindle.

Mounting & Installation
Our suspension for the 911 in a direct replacement for the OE setup. Being built to order, we do have a variety of options available to better suit your build if necessary.
Spring/Torsion Bar Configuration
Depending on the setup and application, our suspension uses either the original torsion bar set up or a combination of torsion bar / coilover springs. Specification of torsion bars can be provided, and evaluation of coilover fitment may need to take place before confirming your order.
Softer spring/torsion bar rates enhance the mechanical grip and increase tyre life. The sensitive damping controls the chassis and tyre movement, ultimately resulting in greater driver confidence through a stronger feeling for the track.
On some models, progressive springs are available. This gives a softer spring rate at ride height, which is then compensated for with a harder rate as the spring compresses.
Overall this gives the opportunity for stronger compression damping without the unloading effect of a high spring rate, this allows us to use less rebound damping which keeps the wheel on the road for longer.
Chassis Set Up
When you purchase suspension from us we supply a complete chassis set up with recommendations for toe, camber, castor, ride height, spring rate and damper setting.
You are also free to contact us about set-up changes for varying conditions in different parts of the world.
