The front and rear suspensions of the 968 CS are 20 mm lower than those of the 968 (shorter front-axle springs / modified spring brace adjustment at rear axle).

The M 030 special running gear offers significantly tauter characteristics than the standard running

The 968 CS with M 030 special running gear is fitted with a limited slip differential with a locking ratio of 40% (normally supplied as M 220 special equipment).
