Pulling the axle is standard and don't think I've read of anyone avoiding that step. You can't lower the carrier assembly enough without doing so.Its weird that there wasn't enough droop travel available to get the rear strut out without pulling the axle. There's got to be a better way, right? I think I would've tried using the "death sticks" spring compressors in the fender well to get the assembly short enough to pull out.
Nice! What did you end up getting? Details?Well that definitely makes me pretty certain I want nothing to do with changing out my suspension when it comes time! Love how detailed you get with the DIY projects, I've definitely used this thread as a resource since getting mine last month!
Appreciate it.Love your attention to detail when doing maintenance and upgrades.
Your dedication to taking photos along the way is commendable too.
I've done a bunch of maintenance on the SQ5 and my aircooled 911, but never have the wherewithal to take photos as I am doing it.
Would love to see some shots comparing the stock suspension to the Cayman R suspension.
I mean, I don't wanna sound like a dick but an iPhone on the dash to capture muffler audio is just...well, it's not ideal and I wouldn't make any purchases based off that.
