Are you ralking about the Quantum Symcro or a Quantum FWD?  Big
diffference between the two!  There are no all-wheel drive Corrados,
so how can a Quantum Syncro rear suspension bolt into a Corrado?
FYI, the rear suspension of the Quantum Syncro (and the 4000 quattro)
is simply the front suspension turned around 180 degrees, the same
subframe and all.  There is no subframe on the rear of the FWD cars,
Quantum or Corrado.

The Golf Syncro rear end, on the other hand, will bolt into your
Corrado.  It has been done by the factory and it's called the Rallye Golf
and it was in production in small numbers back in the late 80s.  There
were some individuals that had done the same conversion on their Corrados
and these were featured a few years ago in European Car.

Get your facts straight.  There are quite a few Quantum Syncro owners
on the list.  Let them tell you.

96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
80 4000 2.0
