WTB: Koni front adjustable sport strut inserts early 944

I am looking for some used but still in great working condition yellow koni adjustable sport strut inserts for a early 944. I have an 85/1. I have the rears already.

Thanks

Is your application just street? I have my LEDA struts available for early 944. These are premium application. I have raced with them for several seasons until moving to larger rotors/calipers and 86 Turbo spindles forcing me to new LEDA application. I am asking $400 for the struts, no takers yet, but for that price, I could throw in a set of Hypercoil #450 springs, which would not be alarmingly stiff. I will bump my classified up the list, it has pictures attached and description. The two new struts were over $1500!

Mainly street with occasional autocross. Trying to go a little cheaper here because I do not know how long I will have the car. Looking for the Koni's to match the rears.

I have Koni height adjustable struts from my 924S. I don't see a M030 strut in the PET manual for 85/1 944, but Paragon lists the same part for early 944 and 924S.

944-343-051-00
944-343-052-00

I replaced the inserts about 6 years ago, maybe 30K miles.

How does $450 plus shipping for the pair sound?

That's what mine are. The Porsche strut housing is black, the externally adjustable damping Koni strut insert is yellow.

I also have my original Porsche (Koni yellow) inserts. They are adjustable, but not externally. You have to compress the piston all the way in and turn, the same as the normal rear Sport shocks. Compression and rebound seem to work fine on both. Adjusting them definitely changes the damping.

$100 for the pair, plus shipping.

are they really stiff to pull out when on the firmest setting? Just want to make sure they are still good. The rears I have are fairly hard to pull out once compressed

Yes they are very stiff at the full firm position. They barely creep under their own weight and are very hard to pull out. Both seem similarly stiff.
