Sorry in advance for long lead up to question.
I have a set of koni struts 8741 1396 sport which I think were fitted previously to an evo 5 and I want to fit them to my 6.5 TME if possible without causing problems.

When I check them against my 6.5 struts the knuckle mount holes are about 6mm more offset from the damper centerline.
I see from Mitsubishi TIM that evo 6 has a different knuckle, Lower control arms and driveshafts than the 5 due to changing the roll center.
When I tried fitting the struts I was not able to line up the knuckle holes to the strut and gave up.

Doing a quick paper layout it seems the strut would fit if pushed inboard about 6 mm but camber would increase by aboout 2 degrees....no good.
Before I finally give up, here is my question..

Has anyone successfully fitted these struts to an evo 6 or 6.5? thanks.

they should fit straight over from a 5 to a TME they share the same front suspension as in knuckle and bottom arm set up, the 6 was different

evo 5 struts are exactly the same as a tme as i had coilovers from a 5 and they went straight onto my tme with no issues
