It's stock e30 master cylinder with 944 Porsche girling brake booster with the rod slimmed down, retreaded and cut to length . Brakes feel great! Will get pics for that later

Thanks dude! Does your master have a little hydraulic piece hanging off it with like 2 in / 2 out that might be a rear bias valve or something?

Nice clean car btw! Any more plans?

+1. Eibachs are pretty low... I'd have way more confidence with IE3s, or H&R Race as the front is pretty high with those springs, and the stiffer rate is helpful too.

thanks man! no i dont think it has anything hanging off the master.


I had the ie3's but only installed the rear springs first and they were definitely shorter than the springs i have in their now - plus they made the 8" rear wheels rub over bumps so i just the left the suspension alone and got rid of the ie3's

( PO said they were eibachs. they are black springs and im pretty sure they have the logo on them. not sure what series they are tho)
