HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

91 S2 suspension

Post  kevin924kevin on Thu Feb 09, 2017 3:42 pm

I have changed out my 924 to 91 S2. I have new steel front arms. Will i use new or old offset for my wheels? I saw a post here once that showed a conversion to lengthen the steel arms. Is this needed?

If you are still using the steel arms then you will use the early offset. As weak as the steel arms are, I would upgrade to the aluminum ones. You can use early or late arms depending on what offset wheels you want to use. Plus with the aluminum arms you use a bolt on rear bushing instead of the press on rubber one.

Yes they are a little weaker, but mine will be reinforced around the edge and i love the easy ball joint replacement. All in brand new form ball joints to racing bushings. I looked at the alum way back and decided the steel is better when they are reinforced at the edges. My opinion. Thanks for the response.

I believe the S2 was also an early offset car.

Nope, all S2's are late offset. In fact all 944 87 and newer are "late offset.

Hi Kevin,

Can you post some pictures of how you plan to strengthen the steel front control arms. I to have these and curious on exactly what you plan to do to strengthen them.

Thanks,
Justin

When I use to track an early 924 I'd have someone seam weld the steel control arms. Not a continuous bead, but a bead a couple of inches long every couple of inches along the manufacturing seam of the control arm, if that makes sense. Some folks will box them in with plate instead.

Hi Justin, i plan to box them in. A thin piece of flat iron fit to sit just inside the arm perimeter. Stitch weld in place, and good to go. I think i will also have the area where the sway bar fastens re inforced. I have heard of them wearing out at that point. But my 78 924 had 110000 miles on it when i parked it and all the front end parts are really nice and tight. In saying that i am still going to change out ball joints bushings etc so its all new. My a arms are brand new with the the derelin bushings and ball joints. i am debating doing the ball joint extension but no criticale, early offset front and later rear. This can be dealt with, with the rims.

Thanks for the reply. I just purchased all new control arms with polyurethane bushings as well as new tie rods. Need to figure out sway bar bushing size when time comes. But thanks for the help makes sense now.

I thought the control arms were interchangeable and the spindles, hubs and struts changed the offset.

They are interchangeable, but the arms are different lengths.
