Lowering a 997.2TT- Anyone done it?

I did a search and found one thread from SharkWerks where they installed TechArt springs for a 20mm drop but that was it. Anybody here dropped their 997.2TT or TT-S? What brand options- height drops?

Trying to see what spring options are out there. I dropped my 997.1TT on GMG's and they were quite favorable for a spring only option. I know Coils are optimal but at this time was just hoping for input on springs.

Thanks.

I am thinking of doing the GMG springs as well. But since the .2 turbo has updated suspension I don't know if those springs for the .1 will be suitable.

apparently lowering the .2 is far and few between - Im looking at the TechArts right now--- 20mm drop seems reasonable

I really like how the GMG springs can be packaged with their sways for the .1
I don't really feel like changing my whole set up to after market coilovers either and I do track my car a handful of times a year too.

Maybe I will give them a buzz and see if they have something in the works for us.

Let me know how you like the TechArts

Hey guys. You're right, the .1 and .2 cars use the same springs. We use H&R, which provide a 1.2" drop front and rear. That translates to just about 30mm. Especially on PASM cars, springs are a great option because you get the lowered ride (looks and handles better), and you also get to keep your factory PASM sport functions. We use H&R springs on just about every .1 and .2 turbo that comes through our doors. We've NEVER had an issue with them.

Here's a pic of a recent .2 TTS we did with H&R springs.

Not of this same car, but here's a Turbo S we did last week, without lowering. It's a noticeable difference.

Hello,
Do your Champion H&R springs for 997.1 Turbo have any Issues with sagging over time?
Also
Are the the identical spring that H&R sells only branded and painted for Champion Motorsport?

Thank you for any help

Bill

After reading all the reviews I installed Eibach lowering springs and a TPC DSC on my 2011 TTS. The ride is firmer and cornering is better. Watch out for bumps and parking barriers though. I would do it again.

I am installing Eibachs this coming week. Do you have pics of how it looks? I think I have just the 3/4 or 1/2 inch drop.
