Wheel hop

Vehicle Information: Year: 2000;

When caught in the rain I've noticed very annoying rear wheel hop if the rear wheels begin to spin at all under acceleration. This car does not have traction control. Any cure for this?

Stock suspension to ROW 030

Vehicle Information: Year: 01; Total Mileage: 12500;

I currently have the stock suspension on my 01 Boxster S. I am switching to the Euro spec ROW 030 and was wondering if I have to switch the compression plates or spring plates as I've heard them sometimes called...or are they standard in all the Boxster S suspensions?

Springs and Ride Height

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001;

I'm interested in changing the ride height of the car to more closely match Euro spec, but I'm not especially interested in a full upgrade. My question(s): Can I just change the springs without anything else? Will using RoW standard spec suffice, or must I use RoW sport?

Sability Managment System

Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Total Mileage: 15000;

Assuming one could obtain the parts economically, is it feasible to retrofit a stock stability management system? Does Porsche "prewire" for that option at some point in the production process that would facilitate this?Is it worth doing or is this a dubious option for a dry road only street car anyway?Thanks for your help.

17" wheels on a Boxster

Vehicle Information: Year: xxx;

I have a set of 17" 996 C4 wheels left over from my 996 onwership, which I would like to use on my Boxster (2.5liter). I know the fronts are identical for both the Boxster and the 996, but the rear wheel is 0.5" wider (9J X 17 with vs. 8.5 x 17). I have read in several places on the internet where people have mounted and used the 996 rear wheels on a Boxster without any problems. I know they fit, but come very close to the strut or shock. Can I safely use the 996 rear on a Boxster, or are spacers or other measures needed?
