I finally got a chance to get the strut towers cut down for my coilover conversion I ordered all fabrication parts and I took both strut housings to the machine shop friend. He did a great job!!!!!

When I got home with the great looking strut feeling good that this project was finally coming together and I discovered the shafts were different one shaft was larger than the other. It never crossed my mind that there were different strut housings with different shafts only for the tii. Any suggestions????? Thanks

D'oh!

I hate things like that. Especially when I know better...

Up side, if you thought you had regular struts, you're $200 richer

than you knew you were...

There are at least three different struts for the 02 series cars. Tii, 2002, 1600. 1600 had the smallest spindles (what I think you're refering to as shafts), Tii the largest in diameter. You may have one from a Tii and one from a 2002, or one from a 2002 and one from a 1600. I also believe that newer Tii struts that were manufactured in the last ten years or so have a slightly different spindle design than the earlier original style.
