WTB or WTT: 1986 951 front spindles...OR...

I have a set of the Brembo four pot calipers from a 1986 951. They came with the correct spindles, but the one of the spindles is damaged. I would like to source a replacement pair of spindles. According to PET, the part number is 951.341.655.01 and 951.341.656.01.

The spindle diameter is ~31.7mm
The center-to-center caliper bolt pattern is ~94mm
The center-to-center strut mount bolt pattern is ~58mm
The width of the strut mount flange is ~20mm

These dimensions are unique to this part number. The later (post 1987) spindles have a larger spindle diameter (35mm), a slightly longer strut mount bolt pattern (~63mm), and a narrow strut mount flange (~18mm). The 86 951 spindle is the best option for me because this is going onto my (heavily modified) 931. If push comes to shove, I will entertain converting over to a later spindle setup provided it has the correct 94mm bolt pattern for the Brembo calipers, but I would prefer not to because I will have to rethink my front strut inserts and coilovers due to the difference in the strut housing attachment. Incidentally, for my application, I am eliminating the mechanical speedometer cable, so I don't need to worry about that nuance.

Alternatively, if there is an adapter bracket that will allow me to bolt the Brembos to a standard 944 spindle, I'll consider that option as well. I'm not familiar enough with the 944 platform to even know where to begin to sort thru all of the permutations, so any tips or pointers would be welcome.

I will consider reasonable purchase price offers, but if possible, I'd like to entertain a straight trade, perhaps for one of the many sets of later spindles and hubs I've collected.
