So I have a set I thought were 924S trailing arms (proper offset for the hubs) but they have a 951 P/N. Are these the wrong arms ?

And yes, I have tried to look them up but there is just such confusing info on the S model...

Clarification, I meat "yes, they are the correct one for 924S"
I just realized that I incorrectly answer "Yes they are" to your question "Are these the wrong arms ?"

Those are not part numbers, they are casting numbers.

alu arms are all the same, the difference in offset is caused by the different hubs.

Do the 931 5 lug hubs from steel arms fit the alu arms?

ANY alu arms from any 924 944 944s 951 968? Just put the 931 hubs on and rock??
Or do you need 924S hubs?

The steel arm hubs don't fit, Alu has stronger/ bigger bearings.

You need 924S or early 944 II (1985/86) with the low offset (ET23).

In that case, does anyone have the P/N for the 924S hubs ? I cannot find them on the 924 PET that I have...
