Porche v 1303 tie rod ends
 
Can anyone tell me if the n/a 944 spindles take the same taper from the tie rod end as that offered up by the 1303 tie rod end?

I'm running 944 spindles on my 1303. Though I know about the bump steer issues that come from having the tie rod end enter from below on the 944 spindle, I'm just curious if I can just put it all together so I can roll the car around, without doing any damage to my spindles.

Thanks in advance

hmmpf! So much for you guys. I went out and checked for myself. For the record, the tie rod ends for the 1303, 924 and 944 are all the same taper.

Thank you John, was looking for this info.

Another thing I learned...well, confirmed yesterday...If you've tried installing 944 spindles onto a 2 bolt Super, you may have found the tie rod ends must be uncomfortably unthreaded to meet the straight steering arms. I used a pair of the slightly longer (4cm) tie rods from the later rack&pinion to make up the difference. It worked perfectly.
