Will they hold, if fitted?

From what I've found there are three tie rod versions. The early non-power steering type, the power steering type and a variation on the power steering type that has a rubber dampener just outboard the inside joint.

Also there is an adapter that is required to fit one type to another.

I'll have to look into it. Do you have the part numbers for the one's you received?

Here's what a Porshe parts book I have says about tie rod assemblies:

The main number is the same for all three.

944 347 033 XX

The end suffix changes for the three types:

01 : 83 till VIN 924 802 0051 also use stop ring 477 419 827

20 : 1983 - 1986 944 and 951(turbo)

20 : 924S

23 : 1987 - 1988 944S and 951 (turbo)

As you can see the VIN is for a 924 and should not apply to you.

Did you get the boots to go with the tie rods?

Hello there. Thanks for that info. Looks like I was supplied with the correct tie rods for my 951, year model 1986.

The boots I have already, they were fitted with the rebuilt power steering rack a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks again
coupe
