Volkswagen Golf MK1, MK2 and MK3, that’s right, some older brother parts will work on your Porsche 944 with little modification, potentially saving you hundreds, if not thousands.

eBay coilovers for a Volkswagen Golf. Only the fronts though, rears are not compatible. Stiffness and ride height adjustable although you’ll be playing at the peak of the height adjustment.

MK1 for NA cars upto ’86
MK2 and MK3 for 87 and up NA, Turbo and S2

These have only been tested with camber plates, yet to be tested without. Also the spindle mount is a bit wider, so shims or washers would be required.

You may need to add some spacers to get the ride height high enough for your taste as they will lower the front end but they are essentially bolt on. Oh and are a fraction of the cost of Porsche specific suspension parts.

Golf Mk1 coilovers https://ebay.us/yqkMpC
Golf MK2 & MK3 coilovers for ’87 and up NA, Turbo and S2 https://ebay.us/eiyTsops

**Rears are not compatible and can be sold.**

For the rear here is a good write-up with part numbers, also adjustable.

Great list, I know of the reference sensor’s bought them at a fraction of Porsche price, the lead is slightly longer but makes no difference.
Found a Volvo 740 in my local scrap yard, sure enough TPS was there £5 😁

Nice list!
