I have a brand new set for my 83 ur-q in my parts box at home. I do
know that there are 2 of each type, don't know that part numbers
right now. I can check the numbers tonight and report back.

Don't know the Pic #. I do know they are on there as I ordered all new
hardware from Linda at Carlson when I did mine a few years ago. When at
the dealer yesterday, I know the coupe GT ones are on different pages, some
are on the strut diagram and some are on the subframe/control arm/balljoint

Sorry, don't know the part numbers. I am using the AL based ones I got a few
years ago. Has a green dot on them. I do have all the spacers and heat

I also see this. I think the diagrams are the same for the entire world, but 

only the applicable part numbers are listed for the country of interest.
I noticed this for the WC turbo stuff and how the aux turbo coolant pump
is installed on an ur-q. Great diagram but no part numbers. For the WC
turbo supply line, check the 5kTQ fiche.
