1990 944 S2 Coilover Recommendation

I'm looking to get a coilover suspension for my car. Looking for a good brand and I would also like to know if the torsion bar has to be removed 

Front Struts for 1989 944 S2

Are the front struts different on 1989 944 S2's than on the 1990-91 models?  I was told that the spring perch was smaller on the later 944 S2's.  I want to order a set of struts and want to make sure I get the correct ones.  Thanks.  Jerry

Control Arms

I started to look for new control arms for my late model 944.  I started noticing that the part number is 944 134 028 02 from the factory parts list.  As I looked into it though, Ive found some 87s have a 951 341 028 00 part numbers installed on them.  I know there is a offset difference between the early and late model cars.  Is there really a difference between the control arms?  I know for the M030 suspension there are major differences, but what about all the other models?

944 Power Steering Fluid

Coming out of winter hibernaiton, my power steering is making a squeeling noise and I have had a slight PS fluid leak.  What is the correct PS fluid to use to top it up?  I havbe heard that a non-synthetic is essential and that Dextron II is preferred but it is hard ot find.

944 Late Offset Converstion from Power Steering to Manual Steering

Yes, I am considering converting my 1989 944s2 to a manual rack and pinion.  What is involved with converting the 1983 944 manual rack and pinion?  

Suspension upgrade, Spax RSX coilover 944s2

I’m planning on upgrading my suspension on my 944S2 and am considering Spax RSX coilover.  Anyone have experience with Spax and how they handle? I don’t want to track, just a smoother ride than my original 135,000 mile old struts.https://www.spaxperformance.com/modern-products/rsx/

Any experiences appreciated (or suggestions).

944 S2 Torsion Bar

Does anyone know what the spring rate of 944 torsion bars? And, do 944 torsion bars get weaker over time?

 

I ask because my 1991 944S2 is quite wallowy and soft at the back when cornering. I have had several of these cars over the decades and none were as bad as this one. I am planning on replacing the shocks, probably with Koni's and front springs. Springs are easy to find the rate on so I'm fine at the front, I just don't want to end up with the front being firmer than the back can handle.

89 944S2 Steering Rack Boot

Yes, what is the difference in the steering rack boot - right vs left side?  When I review different sites, some charge different for right vs left.  Other sites say they are the exact same.  I need to replace the right side boot on a 944 power steering rack.

 

944 Turbo Poor Handling

I have been battling a poor handing issue ever since I finally dropped my rebuilt motor in after a few years of sitting. During the rebuild, I did some other suspension repairs. New control arms, bushings, tie rods, power steering rack, front sway bar stabilizers. I also put new turbo motor mounts in. I have had the suspension adjusted twice by an Indy shop. It feels good initially after the alignment, then a few days later it feels sloppy and I also have a noise that only comes when making a tight right faster turn (such as a jug handle turn onto the highway). Nothing to the left.

1989 Porsche 944S2 - Pinging in Steering Pump

Yes, I have a Porsche 944s2 that is a daily driver.  The car is outstanding short of a new pinging noise that has developed in the power steering but only at start up.  I notice when I let the car warm up for 5 minutes that there is no pinging and once driven - no issues.  Thoughts on the issue?
