Really, what is the point in ordering any 1-way coilover kit these days?

At least with multi-way coilovers the ratio between comp and rebound are infinitely adjustable to your liking.

I do know people with 991 GT3ís that swapped out their PASM for multi-way adjustable coilovers not because there was anything wrong with the factory damperís quality but because mainly they wanted the advantage of adjustability.

Being able to set bump and rebound independently of each other is priceless. Just switching to sport or track mode or whatever Porsche is calling it these days left them wanting independent adjustability and willing to search for an aftermarket solution.

Nitron coilovers don't make noise over bumps if you torque all mounting bolts down F'N tight.

Is your noise coming from the front or rear?

They did not. The photos I posted show the car at Nitronís factory ride height setting, and I went up two turns in the front and one in the rear for ground clearance.

Do you remember if the bottom of the front strut, where it slides into the knuckle is threaded on? I'm trying to get a set for a GTS but the ID of the knuckle is 55mm vs 62mm. It looks like your set up has a smaller diameter below the part that slides into the knuckle, you wouldnt be able to measure that diameter, by chance? That would be mega.

I can give it a shot when I get home, but for a quicker response, contact Adam at Nitron and let him know your situation. Theyíve been *super* responsive to my after-sales inquiries. Iím on my phone so I canít see your location.

The shock bodies are single-piece units. Yes, the fronts have a narrower part at the bottom, but the location where the knuckle clamps on is the same diameter as the stock shocks.

I bet Nitron can make what you need, though. They machine everything in the kit.
