WTB: Front Struts 87 944 n/a

I am looking for a decent set of used struts for my 87 944 n/a. I have replaced everything in the front end and I am still having some tough steering issues. The PO has done some stupid things to this car that I am finding. The struts look like one of them. They are a mess. They were missing some pieces too like the spacer sleeves and rubber stops.

So... with all the expenses of the new front end and the CRAZY price of the new strut assemblies I was hoping to find someone one here that replaced their OEM struts with racing struts or had a parts car and was looking to get rid of them.

I am looking for the entire assembly, spring, top spring cup, any washers that are supposed to be with it and the spacer sleeves (between top spring cup and strut bearing). I have new monoball strut bearings/flange, so they're not needed if you do not have them. If you have the entire unit that would be great too. I am looking for a pair, not just one.

I don't know for sure. The n/a, S, and turbo are all showing different part numbers in the PET. How much do you want for them if they do fit?

Looks like the steering knuckles have different part numbers too. I don't think they'll work. But who knows. I have the turbo M30 sway bar and my brakes pads on the front end are for the S. The struts do not have a part number on them either. That would make things WAY too easy!

It would have. I just won an auction on Ebay last night for a decent pair. Thanks for the response.
