Is there any interest in aluminum 914 trailing arms?
These would be cast and machined to accept the 74-on 911 rear wheel bearing, 80mm in diameter
I need to know if there is any market for something like this, thanks

Hello Geo9146

I may be wrong but, AFAIK, there is no aluminium rear trailing arm option for our 914s. Seen some pictures of somebody adapting rear Boxster suspension to the 914 but flares and major underbody mods would be required. I thought about it along with a Boxster engine swap at some point in the past but available working space and complexity convinced me to just mod my 1.7 to 2.2L and reinforcing the current trailing arms and chassis.

Best of luck,
