I'm not sure that's the case on the 80/90 series cars.  I think the diameter
is the same.  My mechanic is a Porsche/Audi exclusive shop owner, and I'm
pretty sure he told me they'll fit either way.  I don't think he would have
called Eibach to get their input if they could only mount one way.

This is all mute as the springs for the front will NOT fit the rear and

I have the same kit in my 86 5ktq and its fairly obvious what goes where...

86 5ktq
89 200tqa
