Porsche_Cayman_HR_Springs_Ruger_Mesh-31 This morning Andre S’ Porsche Cayman came into the shop to be fitted with the two best mods for any car – a set of wheels for Porsche Cayman and a drop for the Cayman Suspension – set up with a little help from Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei.Porsche_Cayman_HR_Springs_Ruger_Mesh-10Porsche_Cayman_HR_Springs_Ruger_Mesh-28 Alan recommended a set of Ruger Mesh Wheels for Porsche, spec’d out at 19×8.5 ET45 up front, and beefy 19×11 ET40 wheels in the rear. Of course, with wide wheels, you need some quality rubber to match, so a set of Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires in 235/35-19 / 285/30-19 for a nice staggered fitment that will perform as good as it looks.Porsche_Cayman_HR_Springs_Ruger_Mesh-3

To lower the Cayman, we fitted a set of H&R Sport Springs for 981-chassis Porsche Cayman models. Here’s how the front springs look installed as a part of the suspension.Porsche_Cayman_HR_Springs_Ruger_Mesh-1

Here’s how the rear springs look installed. When you lower a car, the alignment needs to be corrected – so we pulled the Cayman onto our Hunter Alignment rack (Click here to schedule an Alignment today, 4-wheel Alignments Start @ $125) to make sure the suspension tracks straight and true.

The 981 facelift really cleaned up the look of the Porsche Cayman, and dropped on the H&R Springs and rolling on the Ruger wheels, the car is perfect – how it should have come stock, really.

From the side profile you can really appreciate the drop – just enough wheelgap as needed for a street-driven car to drive around without too much worry.
