Hi All,


Just got back from the parts guy. I picked up a pair of "green" strut
bearings for my 86 4kq @ 18$CDN each. They carry the part number
(8A0-412-323D)for the stock 4kq _front_ strut bearings, which is fine since
I need to replace my front left bearing.

Here's the confusing part: On 4kq's, the stock _rear_ strut bearing is the
"blue" urq bearing (857-412-323B). Urq's use the same "blue" bearing all
around according to the FA.

A friend with an 83 urq was sold "green" bearings as a replacement for the
stock urq "blues." Since the"blues" fit on the back of the 4kq, does that
mean that I can use "greens" al around?
