This requires removal of the front wheels and wheel well cover to access.

US balljoint:

Euro balljoint (and motor):
928 International has a replacement unit that takes care of this. I think it's about 10.00 or so. It sets the lower ball unit further back.

I went through the same thing with the conversion on the 82.

Thanks Rod! I'll call them up and order them.

Bill, I have all the parts, so I could hook it all up. I read some other posts, and people were saying it really wasn't worth the hassle. But as long as it would hold the bulb steady, it would be fine.

Thanks Everyone for your help!
