FS: 86 Carrera Front Struts. Spindles raised 22mm

These are later Boge struts with 3 1/2” brake spacing. This pair has been reworked by Tangerine racing. Spindles raised 22mm. Steering knuckles curved to help bump steer. Powder coated. I used these on my 914/6 that I tracked. I switched to earlier 3” spacing struts and aluminum Brembo calipers to lighten each corner a lot. I was and am still running Koni adjustable shocks. They require a top spacer ring to take up a 5mm gap between the Koni and the inside of the strut. I didn’t like the play that the struts had with this ring. I would recommend running Bilsteins with these Carrera struts. Bilstein bodies are wider and are held very tightly in place by different top nuts that are specific to Bilsteins. The Boge shocks may be fine to, but I don’t know. You will need spacers to run 15” wheels or you need to run taller rims. I know you can raise the spindle 19mm and still run 15” rims with no spacer. There is a slight amount of wear on the left spindle where the outer wheel bearing race sits. It’s not from The bearing spinning on the spindle. You can barely notice this with your finger nail. It just sounds like your wheel bearing may be set slightly loose. Never had a problem with these at speed on the track.
$375 plus shipping.

Just a note, I have been raising spindles for over 10 years and 15mm is the limit to fit
a 15" fuchs wheel. These look to be Bogie Strut housings that have had the body modified
(Tig Welded), if so the Bilstein Insert is a very tight fit and any welding my prohibit the
insert from being inserted. The Koni Insert has a much smaller diameter. The spindles
alone are worth the value that you are selling them for.

Thanks for that info Steve. I was under the impression that 19mm was the max. Bilstein shocks do fit in these struts. After Tangeringe Racing put these together they slide a set of Bilstein shocks to make sure they fit. I will update my post to reflect Boge housings.

Interest in raised spindles.

I have an 82 SC and assume these will fit. Please advise! Wondering where you are located and total cost shipped to Eastern Pennsylvania.
Thanks for your time.
