Differences in spindles

I lost my data sheet in the specs of the early vs late and turbo spindles. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

'86 Turbo spindles have the early offset (23mm) - 87 and up have the late offset (47mm ?)

Did this answer your question -OR?

Late offset is 52.3mm.

Thickness of strut-clamping area is 18mm.

The angle of the spindle-clamp holes are also different due to different lateral angle of the struts.

The early NA spindle is 20mm thick at the strut clamp.

I've fitted an early rebuildable NA strut on an '86 951 in order to use a variety of strut-inserts: KYB, Tokico, Bilstein, Koni HD, Koni Sport adjustables, Koni 8611 dual-adjustables.

The lower round hole on strut should be elongated since the spacing is slightly different. Made a 2mm rectangular shim to fill the thickness difference in clamp. Make a square and round hole in shim for the spindle-clamp bolts. Also added coilover-sleeves and 400-lb springs while I was at it.
