WTB parts for my '89 944 - Ball joint, dashboard, wheel spacers

I am looking for a few used parts that I can't seem to find.

1.) Front A-arm ball joint. I have the A-arm that has the joint built into it, not the 3-bolt style. I think I can bolt up a whole new A-arm with the three bolts though if I get the whole arm, right?

2.) Black dashboard cover for the top. Mine is all cracked from sun exposure over the years.

3.) Wheel spacers/adapters, I'm interested in spacers from .5" - 2". If you have something that will adapt from the Porsche 130mm lug pattern to either 100mm or 115mm that would be AWESOME!

Thanks for looking guys,

Dan

Dan,

I wouldn't buy a used ball joint but rather contact one of the vendors and buy new. The part is inexpensive and better to be safe than install something with over 25K miles.

Sounds like you're trying to bolt up an older steel to your 89 chassis. Won't work. The offset is different. You can rebuild that ball joint with Rennbay or *****************' kit but can't swap like you want to.

You will need a used aluminum control arm w/a good ball joint. Drivers side or passenger?
