Default Strut Swap?

How much different are the 240 and 7/940 series cars? Would it be possible to run a 240 strut in the 940?

940: Longer tube, higher spindle position, different steer arm position, don’t know about the base (ball joint) pattern.

This is partially why I want to run the 240 struts. Because nobody currently makes a quick steer roll corrector and R brake caliper adapter that works together for 7/900 series . Iím looking at shortened 240 struts

Thatís right, 4 bolts vs 2.

Wilwood rotors are available for taurus (same pattern), and those calipers are yuuuge.
The police/taxi 940 brakes are plenty. I might test-fit willwoods on those.

A police 940? Perfect for napping!

I already have R calipers so I kind a want to run them. I might just not run the quick Steer roll corrector
