Default Using 944 suspension parts for 924S

I'm planning on rebuilding my '87 924S tired suspension and want to know if I can use 944/Turbo struts (such as M474 option koni) as straight bolt on? I know the 924S uses steel control arms and the 944 Turbo uses aluminum so want to know if the struts will work on the older style steel control arms.

Also, if anyone has advice on a suspension package that would work well on a DE(first)/Street (sometimes) set up. Assuming I can use the 944 series M474 or similar, I would go with those and 250# springs, either Turbo or 968 M030 sways, and rear coil overs. I don't want to change the rear torsion bars so any advice on a coil-over rear shock with helper spring would be appreciated.

Just fit Bilstein B6 inserts in the original front legs and replace the rear damper units with Bilstein B6, then either fit harder front springs 951 ? or lowered weltmeister etc...and an 18mm rear Sway bar

Todd, you can fit the Turbo sealed struts but not without modding the spindle on your car to make it happen. I agree with just replacing the front inserts and rear shocks with either Koni or Bilstein.
