The right ride height can make all the difference. Check out how this 997.1 Porsche Carrera2 looks, before and after a simple drop, courtesy of a set of Eibach Pro Kit Springs for Porsche 997. A few weeks back, we started things off the right way, fitting this silver beauty with a set of Avant Garde Ruger Split wheels for Porsche. Senior Mod Expert Alan recommended a 19in staggered fitment for a tailored look.

Here’s how it went by the numbers:
Avant Garde M510 Ruger Split Wheels – Matte Silver Machined
(2)19×8.5 ET45
(2)19×11 ET52

The owner of this Porsche wanted to lower the car without destroying the ride quality of his car, making the Eibach Pro-Kit for Porsche an ideal choice for this customer’s needs, and with this model these springs yield a mild drop of approximately .6 inches both front and rear (owner verified using a measuring tape, that was the final drop height after a week), bringing it down quite a bit visually without taking away from the driveability of the car – it’s worth noting that the H&R Springs for Porsche drop the car close to 1.5in, which is often “too much” for many P-car owners.


Taking the extra height out of this 997 Porsche Carrera 2S Suspension is actually a fairly painless process – contrary to what you might think, ‘working on a Porsche’, the suspension and brakes are surprisingly easy to work on, so the skilled techs in the shop at Mod Auto were able to make quick work giving the Carrera S a drop.

When we first fitted the car with the Ruger Split Wheels a few weeks back, several of us here at the shop remarked how the car was begging for a drop, and we’re pleased to see our gut instinct was right on the money, as this P-Car looks positively cash.
