      93 Wagon / 93 Corrado

      i know that most parts are interchangeable between mk2, 3, Corrado, B3, and 4 platforms, and that certain ones are longer / shorter than others depending on platform and engine options...

      with this being said, i am looking for more specific data; specifically how much shorter the mk3 plus suspension is compared to the B3/4. i thought i read somewhere that it was 9mm difference?

      and if its only 9mm i know the control arms and axles will need to be swapped, but the tie rods should be able to compensate by screwing in further? anyone done this?

      thanks in advance!

      I thought the MK3 plus suspension was exactly like the B3-B4 stuff, wider and all.

      I can probably get some measurements on the base MK3 stuff on Wednesday while I'm on a parts run.

      after days of searching, i finally was able to find this, according to the Bentely:

      VR6 Passat track width = 1460/1422mm F/R

      VR6 mk3 track width = 1450/1432mm F/R

      Corrado track width = 1450/1432mm F/R


      ***EDIT***
      yet the 93 B3 brochure claims 58.4 [1483] / 56.2 [1427]
