I was just going over some of the car, to get part # and noticed. that the rear trailing arm on the car, is for an 87 turbo late offset # 951.331.513.4r. am i wrong or is that the right trailing arm for my car. If so how do they have early offset wheels on them. Picture of trailing arm is above. Thanks

On the front suspension, the upper strut mounts are different between 86 and 87. Learned that the hard way when I upgraded my 86 turbo to late offset.

That is a casting number, not a part number. It does not show up on PET.

The actual PN's are:
951.331.021/022.01
M030: 951.331.021/022.31

but don't expect to find these stamped onto the trailing arms anywhere.

So according to PET, the trailing arm is the same for both early and late offset cars. The difference is in the hub/spindle apparently.

So for the rear, other than the torsion bars, you will need late offset axles/hubs, plus rotors and of course turbo calipers.

There will likely be some other minor things, but that is what PET shows.
