Porsche 911 Safari Suspension Lift

The Adventure Begins Where the Road Ends

Street driving a Safari car is all about having fun. Classic 911 handling remains and is enhanced by the raised ride height. Everywhere you go it’s smiles and thumbs-up.

But take it off road and there is so much more to explore. Safari cars let you adventure to the back country and through rugged terrain. There’s nothing like the feeling of putting a 911 through its paces far from civilization.

Porsche’s Million Dollar Rock Crawler

Safari 959 PorschePorsche’s 959 was conceived as the multi-tool that would dominate Group B rallying, the no-holds-barred series that saw the likes of the Lancia Delta Turbo Integrale, Audi Quattro S1, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, and Subaru WRX duke it out for top bragging rights on both tarmac and gravel. To qualify, Porsche had to homologate road cars that would be available for purchase by the general public. There was just one hitch: by the time the car was ready to debut, following a series of high-profile accidents, Group B had been cancelled.

Safari Suspension Tech


Strut Reinforcement Kits for Porsche 911, 912, 930, 914Safari cars are great fun just driving down the street. But a whole new dimension happens off road. Rugged terrain loads the suspension and chassis in ways that street cars never see. Robust as is, the 911 chassis has known vulnerabilities. Any serious safari build should address these proactively, before they fail.

Suspension Travel and Geometry

Strut Reinforcement Kits for Porsche 911, 912, 930, 914Unlike most cars, 911s have adjustable ride height right from the factory. Does that mean you can just raise your stock suspension to achieve the safari height you covet? No, it does not.If you simply raise the ride height you are putting the suspension into droop and the angles of the suspension members change in undesirable ways. You will introduce geometry, suspension travel and alignment problems, as well as potentially create unsafe condition with parts breakage.

Lift Height and Tire Selection

Porsche 911 Safari Suspension LiftHow much can you raise the car? Total height is determined by a combination of the suspension rise plus the increase due to larger tire diameter.Our safari suspension kits put the suspension into a reasonable range of adjustment 2-3 inches higher than stock. Tires typically add 0.5″-1″ (12mm-25mm) to that for a total height increase of 2.5″-4″ (62mm-100mm). A very substantial left gain.

Adjustable swaybars for Porsche 911How stiff should a safari suspension be? That really depends on how the car will be used.Cars that will run off-road over uneven terrain will benefit from softer suspension setups. This provides the compliance needed to allow the tires to follow and stay in contact with the surface.

Safari Suspension Porsche 911Our Safari Suspensions need not be a permanent modification. Run your Safari setup as long as you like, but should you ever decide to revert back to factory ride height, this is very easy to do.

Even if you’ve chosen one of our adjustable-height coilover safari packages, it is very easy to revert back to a factory torsion bar setup at any time and most of your safari components (bushings, drop links, camber plates, etc…) will carry over to enhance a factory ride-height suspension.
