Springs for an s2

Maybe my search skill are going to heck. But I can't seem to find springs that don't have some sort of small print in the description (not for s2).

I think there are h&r springs in pelicans store but what other options are there?

I don't want to order something only to find out I either need to modify something or buy something else.

Also of if I had a full turbo parts car I what would I need to swap over to make the struts work on an 89 s2.

The only lowering springs I know are for NA and turbo models with bigger ID. You might have to go to coilover set up in order to get different springs. Turbo struts bolt on to the S2 directly.

If you have the smaller diameter springs, CS springs for the 968 have the specs listed in the workshop manual.

With the turbo struts I have to use turbo springs as well?

Yes but you can use the Weltmeister or H&R lowering springs too

Great thanks!!

And strut mounts are all the same post 87 or something is that right?

So turbo Koni adjustables, my choice of turbo springs, and strut mounts and they will bolt right in? No other modifications?

Why did they make the S2 such an oddball with springs

That is correct. The difference is between ABS and non-ABS cars as the wiring coupler for the sensors are mounted on the strut. The smaller ID springs on the S2 and 968 we're introduced in order to accept wider rims/tires in 17" size without clearance issues.

So I might be able to grab these

Koni 8741 1136 r&l

Not sure how long they have been sitting around boxed up. Assuming they will work what's a good offer?
