I purchased new front struts for my 2008 Touareg from Rock Auto. After taking the old ones off I noticed that there was a size difference between the 2. The spring had less coils but I didn't think that was a big issue. The main issue is the part at the top above the top mounting piece. I have attached a picture that shows the difference. Will these new struts still fit with this issue or is this just not the right strut for my car? Any insight will help.
