When should you put on new struts?

Alignment

Vehicle Information: Year: 02; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 22000;

I have recently purchased this car. It had just received the Minor service at a Porsche dealer. It had a significant shake at 70-75+. Rebalancing the front tires pretty well solved that, but the car still feels overly busy at highway speeds. Even small bumps upset it. My guess is the alignment could be better. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,

2001 Boxster S 030 Suspension Upgrade

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001;

I would like to upgrade a stock non 030 suspension on a 2001 Boxster S to the 030 configuration as delivered new from the factory. What parts must I buy? The 030 option is very hard to find in a used car.

Rear Wheel Hop

Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2L; Total Mileage: 22,400;

I experience wheel hop in the rear when accelarting in certain conditions such as hard turns from a stop or especially if road is slightly slippery. I would suspect at a hard start with wheels spinning it would also hop. Is there any way to eliminate this through suspension upgrades or other means.

H&R Sport Springs with stock shocks

Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5;

I've got a stock Boxster (non-030) to which I've added H&R Sport Springs which lower the car and allow for additional negative camber for the track. I've been told that without changing the shocks to (at least) M030 shocks, I'm risking blowing out the shocks due to differences in shock travel. True?

Improving handling on 1998

Vehicle Information: Year: 1998;

I am interested in improving the handling of my 98 but am concerned about too harsh a ride. My last project was quite successful with a BMW 3 series, but I grew tired of the harshness.Will strut tower braces make a noticable improvement on the Boxster for track days? Sway bars were another thought but I fear messing with the wonderfull balance that Porsche has achieved.I'm sure lowering springs will improve cornering but can this be done with minimal ride deterioration?Any thoughts you would share are most appreciated.

Suspension setup

Vehicle Information: Year: 1988; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5 L Stock; Total Mileage: 40000;

I am trying to improve the suspension setup for Autocross and DE events. I would like to try the European settings for the alignment. Could you let me know what they are and how they compare to the US specs?

Suspension upgrades

What would you recomend for street/track use - the m030 row or the H&R coil over performance suspension system?
