Koni 474 Struts Early offset

Set of Koni 474 Struts: PN 951-34-(031 & 032)-02, superseded by-06. These have the mounts for early offset cars. I took them apart and had to lean on them to compress and when released they rebounded firmly, so should not be leaking any gas and have a good bit of life left in them. They have been setting for several yrs., as I bought for my '87 turbo, before I knew there was a difference in offsets. They need new bumper stops, boots & sensor connector clips and grease on bearings or replace with the Monroe VW's.
$200 Paypal or cash. Pickup in Bloomington, In. or estimated $50 ship to CONUS.

Difference in offset is common knowledge between early and late cars. 87+ has a larger offset to account for ABS that are on some 87+ cars. Because of this difference in offset, there is a difference in angles on the top mounts of the struts. It's not large but it's enough for >86 and 87+ struts to not be interchangeable (without some work anyway).

all you have to do is change the upper mount or use camber plates,all struts for turbos are interchangeable from 86-89 and all turbo struts can be use in any 944na 87-89 968-92-95. The offset is not dependent of the strut.

You are correct the actual shock absorber itself is the same between 86-89 turbo's but the top mounts aren't. And because this is being sold as a shock with spring and mount, that would make it a late offset strut (as an assembly). Some folks won't know you can use pieces of it on earlier cars but as a complete unit as being sold, it won't work on 86's.

Also, turbo struts will not fit 87-89 NA's. The bolt holes where it attaches to the spindles are spaced differently. They will not bolt up without modification (and compromising the integrity of the suspension).

Yes, all late struts have the same bolt spacing 87-89 for 944na and turbo, that's why you can take the M474 suspension out of a 944s and install it on a turbo and vice-versa. With all due respect, what is the source for your information?
