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 …

Front Spring Recommendation

Post  fantic on Mon Mar 27, 2017 8:02 am

Car is a 86 NA. The motor is a 6.0 iron block. Looking for springs and struts to balance it out. The car will mostly be used on the street. So don't want it to be to stiff. We have a lot of rail crossings around here and would like to get the nose of the car back up. Also if anybody knows how to get the bedliner off the bottom of the car that the PO put on I would appreciate it.

Not sure on spring rates but I can comment on the rubber coating on the bottom. It is a pain in the ass. I had my entire car sand blasted and that did not remove any of it. Pretty sure only way I have seen it removed is a wire wheel and a whole lot of elbow grease. Good luck

the bed liner stuff wouldnt look so bad if it didnt go up the fender and quarter panel. if the car was prepped correctly for it, its gonna take some chemical stripper to remove it. however ive found in the past if proper prep wasnt done (old paint scuffed/sanded) the stuff will peal right off if you can get an edge up. i once redid a fabricated truck bumper because they sprayed the bed liner right over the metal without anything more than a wipe down, it was fine till the bumper got smacked and it cracked the coating, after that you could peal it off in sheets. its worth a try, but no matter what your going to be repainting the car. if it doesnt come of the chin spoiler easy id look for a replacement, i dont think anything that takes bedliner off is gonna be very friendly to the urethane.

springs and struts depends on the budget and what your really after. you could toss a set of koni inserts in and go with weltmeister 250lb springs. for a little more money paragon products has a coilover kit that uses koni inserts and adjustable spring perches, and it uses a common 2.5" id spring. they also have a matching rear coil over conversion that eliminates the torsion bars. or there is the other end of the spectrum, KW makes a real nice set of coilovers, so does bilstein and a few other companies.

I noticed that Weltmeister has two 250lb springs. One heavy duty and one Autocross. Also they are lowering springs. Would I need to install a spacer to bring the front of the car up?
