Koni doesn't make "full struts" they are replacement inserts. If they still made them for a Beretta you would still have to do the same procedure just minus this collar because the cartridge would be a larger diameter.

Sure they do...

I want to close this group buy interest at the end of next week to give some others a chance to chime in... SO if you are interested and want these then I would like 50% down payment on Friday the 8th of Nov, That would be $23 PER SET, sent via Paypal jpchmura @ att . net sent as gift so no fee is charged. When they are ready to ship I will get you the shipping charges and then you can pay the remainder and they will be on their way to you.

The material will be purchased the following Monday and hopefully have them made that week or that upcoming weekend of the 16th when my machinist has the time.

J bodies don't use the same strut as us so this is not applicable... If you want konis on a J body just buy the insert pn's from my thread which fit the stock 95-05 strut if you want these to fit a pre 95 you need to cut up and measure the strut inner diameter to see if you can make something work.

The mounts vary on the 83-94 J-Body. They all use the older strut like the 87-91 Beretta.

If the 93+ upper mounts would fit then you could use these because the older mounts are setup for a longer threaded stud than what the Koni has.
