      I thought BSI used to push the short MkIs Konis using a modified MkII housing and insert. I would think the same would be the short option for for Bilsteins. I think you can only get the HD not the Sport from Bilstein as an insert, so you would use Sport housing assembley. Is the knuckle flange wider on the MkII so you need a shim?

      I think it is whatever Koni lists for the front of a MkII. You can call Lee Grimes at Koni Technical. He loves helping racers with questions like this. BSI might still have an old parts list that has what they sold.
