Hi all,

I have a 1990 33 16v and I'm looking to replace my tired std Boge shocks with Koni Sport inserts. I have spoken to our local Koni dealer and they are saying there is a nut on the top of the strut that is removable and the existing insert can simply be replaced by a Koni version. They have no personal experience of this however, they are just going off what the catalog is saying.
I had a feeling the top of the shock had to be cut off and a threaded insert had to be welded on. Does anyone have any experience with this? I couldn't find another post about this, point me in the right direction if there is one.

Does anyone know if the Boge strut is serviceable? if so, how do you get into it as the top appears to be swaged over?
I did put a big pipe wrench on the top of my strut on the only piece the looks as though it could be removable, but I had no luck.

Boge Part# from strut is 1 0211 32 512 C??

Photos below, the end is linished to tidy up what I did with the wrench....

Thanks in advance
