[V8] Upper strut mounts, front; two versions? What's different?

I see there is a VIN split, and the later V8 got a different front upper
strut mount.

Early V8 up to VIN  4C-M-020 000 and 3B 200q20v (forged)
441 412 377D

V8 after VIN 4C-N-000 001*, 100/S4/A6/S6 from '92 on 
4A0 412 377C 

One of my older style mounts looks bad; and I have a good early style.
Any idea of what changed?  Looking at parts, it seems the whole
design/part number of the upper mounting changed.  I'm planning to pull
the old one out, and compare it to the good used one I've got (off an
early V8 I think).
