I need to know if the front spindle and knuckle from a fwd turbo or non turbo will fit an Awd
Model. Specifically front drivers side. If you could enlighten me thanks.

The hubs are the same, the knuckles are not. The tie rod end arm (for lack of a better definition of it) in the FWD is lower than the one in an AWD due to the different suspension design. FWD knuckles are actually considered a fix for AWD cars that have been considerably lowered.
