    New style steering coupling

    My old steering coupling is shot so I'm replacing it with the new style that Porsche sells. It is obvious how the original one mounts up but I'm not sure about the new style since it doesn't have a solid mount all the way through for the bolts. In other words if I use the original hardware and torque it down it just compresses the coupling. Anyone have experience with the new style? Thanks

    Mine did. I purchased from Sierra Madre. Brand is JORG.

    I haven't installed it yet so I don't actually know how it goes together, but the metal sleeves fit perfectly over the bolts.

    Yes I bought it at my local Porsche dealer. So you're saying it should've come with the sleeves?
