I read that a few weeks ago on PCA site. I love these stories, and it seems that you have plenty more.

Glad your bro still has it, that car is a keeper.

The latest story is a cautionary tale, but a good read.

Loved the story, Adam. Congratulations on your 993.
Tell me a little more about the rear end issue. Mine has 40,000 miles and doesn't seem to have a problem. What's the problem and when should I expect it?

Glad you liked it. Are you talking about the suspension? If so most of the original set-ups are getting worn out.

So needing new bushings required? I'm doing a four wheel alignment so I'll check then.

Thanks

I ended up doing a complete new Bilstein Suspension all the way around. It's an adjustable system so I can play with it depending on what I'm doing with the car.
