Genuine Porsche Shock Update Kit
It’s good to let everything stay the same: when it comes to driving characteristics. Your Porsche 993 is an original. You can see that from its looks, its character, but above all from the way it drives. Because, when it comes to sports performance, from the very beginning this model was designed for comfort. And you shouldn’t have to do without that.
However there was a problem if the shock absorbers became defective. The standard parts originally made for those chassis were no longer available. But Porsche Classic has reissued them and is once again fulfilling the original development objective.
Thanks to modern technology, the new dampers are even better than the originals in some aspects. Because the new technology provides the balance between even finer settings and achieving the original interpretation of sport and comfort. After all, nothing has been left to chance in the new design. The Porsche developers – who also test and approve the current series produced vehicles – worked closely with damper experts, Bilstein, who were involved in equipping the Porsche 993 RS even back in the nineties.
This understanding has resulted in a technology that combines the latest knowledge with the highest Porsche standards. Because your classic model should still be fast and safe, even close to the driving limits. And, especially when combined with modern N-rated tyres – which have also been tested and approved by Porsche for your model – your Porsche 993 will start to show previously unimagined strengths.
By changing the shock absorbers you will be giving your Porsche back its original roadholding. And for a long time to come – because the system of single-tube dampers.
Front axle shock absorbers. To compensate for the lateral forces on the struts at high cornering speeds, the front axle setting has been changed to upside-down technology together with single-tube gas pressure dampers. The piston rod is now supported at the bottom of the damper. The cartridge projects from the top of the working cylinder which also contains the gas pressure cushion.
Rear axle shock absorbers. The single-tube gas pressure damper is installed in the conventional position: chromiumplated damper rod at the top, gas cushion at the bottom. As learned from decades on the racetracks of this world. However, a whole new way of thinking was involved in establishing the damper characteristics – bundles of small round steel plates were stacked together and fitted in the damper as valve bodies. The material composition? Well, that’s a secret.
