Hey everyone,

My wife drives a Porsche 996 CARERRA 4. Though it’s getting older, we keep it very well maintained. The car rides and handles great.
From searching the forum, looks like the Öhlins R&T would be the best way to get an NC close to that level of ride and handling (direct, accurate, but comfortable and not at all harsh).
Is that the way to go? Would I need anything further to get as close as possible to that goal?
Thanks in advance - great to be able to read about all of your experiences!

Ohlins are the answer. Just like Miata is always the answer.

Ditto, if you want the best of everything...ride with handling, Ohlins is my top pick, our top suggestion.

I'm waiting patiently for my ND2 suspension modification, Ohlins are top of my list.
Brian is it ok to stick with stock (Club) sways and Ohlins ?

You might ultimately want a sway bar upgrade, but I usually like customers to start with just the Ohlins and come back after some driving with them and tell me how much more flat you want it in the turns. The Ohlins is such a revolution in the handling/ride mix of the car that often folks come back and tell me it is perfect and they need nothing more. Sometimes they come back and tell me they want it even more flat in the turns and then we talk about the options to get there but starting with 'just' the Ohlins is such a BIG change that we like customers to put some miles on those and then come back to talk about what comes next. Thus, big YES to Ohlins with your stock sways for now.
