Does anyone know if the later 93 front strut inserts will go into a NG 900s strut?

I have to fix one of my Konis and I need something to hold the car up and all I can find so far is 2003 models.
Nobody is wrecking an NG within driving distance.

They won't fit. I'm not exactly sure if the issue is the diameter, the length, the shape of the top, or some combination of those, but there are enough differences that they won't fit. If you're in the US, I'd get a pair of the black Bilstein B4 strut inserts from RockAuto for $51.79 each. I've been very happy with mine, and they're on a lowered stage 4 1997 900 turbo.

Thanks Jeremy. Not US.
I should have bought a new one when our dollar was higher.

What I do know is that Bilstein has different part numbers for both but also that they'll do that if there's 3 mm length difference.

There's a difference in the top diameter with the NG900 struts as I recall. It's more than just a minor length difference (which I think is also there) .
