Upper strut mounts (blue or green) for urQ, 4kq, 90q

Some where in the collection of bits and pieces in my
garage I have a set of Boge strut mounts (metal parts
are green) and I have a set that the rubber has been
sprayed blue, supposed to be the OE urq mounts. They
appear to be identical in size. I don't have anything
to measure the rubber durometer so I could not tell
which was harder. I don't recall if they had the same
part numbers or the brand for the "blue" ones but I'll
look when I get home. I bought both sets to compare
before installing them in my 4kq. I no longer own
either of my 4kq's but still have the strut mounts.
Take care
