the prokit part number is 1506.140
these are the same parts i have on my 86 tqw.
according to "the ric":
>"Spings are Custom Wound to my specs the car is lowered but only by 7/8" .
"custom wound" means "off-the-shelf" in this particular case...

according to the fiche, the wagon and sedan differ in the rear
suspension by three pieces.  spring, shock and rubber bumper.
in addition, there was a change in spring and shock part #'s starting with
build date 1/86 (G073363).  at this point, wagon and sedan shared the
same spring part number but still had different shocks specified.
btw my fiche only goes up to my88, so your 89 may be different yet from
the 86>88 44q's...
