I was wondering if anybody knew if the adjustable coil over setups for the Rabbit/Gulf/Jetta would work in the 924 since much of the front suspension is similar.

The front suspension _is_ the same, down to the part numbers, as far as the strut and a-arm basics (though slightly different for swaybar attachments), and they do work and are interchangeable. Check out the front struts on my racecar, on my website.

Could I also use the front suspension bushing kits for the A1 Rabbit/Jetta in that case? If so, which of the following sets are applicable on the follwoing page on JCWhitney.com:

Yeah, that'd work; I put in a set of full spherical bearing inserts for Golf/Rabbit in my car. I believe you'll be wanting the 81ZX8388T part, that looks like the one for the a-arm bushings.
