Factory 993 Steering Rack Brace

In Feb 1996 Porsche released a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) approving the retrofit of 18" wheels on certain 993 models:

1. All 1996 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 Coupes
2. 1995 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 Coupes after VIN 99 7 SS 323614

For the 1995 models mentioned above, the requirement for this upgrade was to install a "steering rack reinforcement brace" since the larger diameter wheels would put more pressure on the steering rack.

Note: Also use 2x Allen Bolt 999-218-103-0J - For Left-Hand Drive models only. For Right-Hand Drive version use part number 993-347-130-02.
