That depends.  Do you have one or two-piece struts?  If you have one-piece
(bearing housing and shock housing are one unit) in the rear of the car
the 4kq rear wheel bearings (SKF # 633-791 or Audi PN 443-407-625) will be
compatible.  However, if you have two-piece struts the bearings are
smaller... Note: no 4kq's came w/ 2-piece struts.
Also, 5-cylinder 90's only came with 2-piece struts (says Bentley and by
only one  PN  listing for front bearing).
