Rennline Sealed Monoballs
Most Porsche owners today, especially those of us who take our cars to the track, have equipped our cars with tires much wider and stickier than stock, which allows higher g-forces to be achieved in cornering and braking. During that type of hard driving, rubber suspension bushings are compressed and flexed by the extreme loads being put on them, defeating your car's finely tuned alignment settings, thereby reducing your braking and cornering potential. Monoballs are a downside-free improvement; because they eliminate four important sources of suspension slop without making your car's ride harsher. Your Porsche will handle and brake with greater precision, predictability, and feedback to the driver. Rennline monoballs are equipped with FK Motorsports bearings, cadmium-plated and Sealed to prevent premature wear due to moisture or dirt contamination, ensuring long track or street life. Fits 996/997/986/997/Cayman

Tarett Engineering Control Arm Monoballs
  • Replaces the compliant factory rubber bushing with a precision Teflon-lined spherical bearing for increased front or rear suspension rigidity, quicker steering response, and better handling.
  • Reduces front wheel camber and toe changes during hard cornering to maintain optimum tire contact for improved traction.
  • Uses a Stainless Steel monoball and spacers for corrosion resistance.
  • Comes complete with high quality jet nuts.

Tarett Engineering Rear Toe Control Arm Set
Restore proper suspension geometry with this adjustable lower rear control arm. The factory control arm can't compensate enough when lowering your 911 or Boxster, leaving you stuck with as much as 1/2" of toe in. The result is poor handling and rapid tire wear. This kit will provide the additional adjustment needed.

The adjusting link has a left and right hand thread on each end. Rotating the link will increase or decrease the overall length of the arm.

A precision Teflon lined spherical rod end replaces the compliant rubber factory bushing for improved suspension response and feedback, and also reduces toe changes during acceleration and deceleration. The result is improved stability and control.

The complete kit comes as shown, including new Porsche outer tie rods.

Stomski Racing Rear Toe Control Arms
Precision alignment and bump steer set up are critical for proper handling, tire wear, and ultimate performance. STOMSKI RACING's Rear Toe Control Arms, fabricated to exacting tolerances and standards, provide the premier upgrade for your track or street car. We use aerospace quality rod ends and components to provide for the most durable, accurate part available. With a left and right hand double adjuster, our toe link allows for extremely precise and infinite adjustment to fine tune suspension settings. Also included are seals to protect the monoballs in the harsh exposed environment. Fits the 996, 997, Boxster, and Cayman.

Rennline Adjustable Control Arms
If you're serious about how your 993, 996, 997, Cayman, or Boxster handles, you should upgrade the rear suspension with adjustable control arm links. There are two major drawbacks to the factory links: (1) You can't lower your car and maintain proper suspension geometry. The factory links create too much toe-in, which cannot be adjusted out, creating handling problems and excessive tire wear. (2) The factory links have rubber bushings, which make handling imprecise, especially in performance driving when suspension loads are highest.

Rennline adjustable control arm links solve both these problems. Manufactured from 6061 aluminum and feature a turnbuckle design that allows each arm to be lengthened or shortened as needed to restore proper suspension geometry on a lowered Porsche. The FK Teflon-lined rod end bearings ensure precision handling and lock in your car's alignment settings, ensuring predictable cornering under all conditions. Unlike the competitors' product, Rennline arms come with eccentric locks and new hardware so you can completely eliminate the factory setup, which is known to go out of adjustment under hard driving and ruin your car's alignment.

This tie rod end puller is an absolute must for removing your tie rods. It clamps down on the tie rod and pushes it out of the tapered fitting that is on the end of the strut. Make sure that you use a tool when removing the tie rod end - smacking it repeatedly with a hammer probably will not work, and most certainly will damage your strut.
