I bought a Porsche 911 996 3.4-litre Carrera back in September 2016. It was in pretty good condition, but after 18 years’ use and 55,000 miles, its suspension was well past its best. Also, out of the factory the car was set up with plenty of understeer built in to make it far more benign than any 911 before it. I wanted to make my car not only feel like new, but better than new.

And so a complete suspension overhaul was needed. I decided to go with Ohlins Road and Track coilovers, Powerflex polyurethane bushes and Tarett Engineering adjustable anti-roll bars and drop links. Please note that in this video all the parts were supplied by the relevant manufacturers free-of-charge for use in the video. However, I selected them based research as to which set-up would be most suited to my needs for the car. Design 911 also did the work free-of-charge, once again I chose to feature them in the video due to their expertise in Porsche parts supply and fitting.

Thanks to:
