Front Coilovers

Does anyone know what front Coil overs brand came with the MKII back in 2001. I have an MKII that have Carreras (I think) and I want to rebuild them. There are no markings on the shock so I'm not sure of the manufacturer.

Either Pro Shocks (gold colored) or Bilsteins which I think were silver.

I bought my kit 6/02. It came with Pro-Shocks. Gold body, black springs.

I really don't think it hurts, being it's safety related. .
There may be new members who have just joined the forum recently, after purchasing a partially completed, or an already built car. It would be good for them, so they can check to see if they may have the affected parts. Not every builder back in the day, was a member here, and may have never been aware of this issue.

I, for one, am grateful it is still stickied. I did not know this and just saw this. I'll be making a point to check my shocks when I get them in a couple of months. Thank you for not unsticky-ing important safety stuff like this
