New beetle before 6/1/1998?

I'm trying to buy some suspension and steering front end parts, but all the listings say compatible on beetles built after 6/1/1998. Mine was built in March of 1998. What did they change or any help understanding this. Thanks

I believe that it is the driveshafts that changed. Take a look at this database that lists all the part numbers used in the 1998 New Beetle:


There are a lot of different driveshaft part numbers, but most of the suspension parts have one number meaning that the part was not changed during the model year.
Nice link, thanks for sharing! I'll have to bookmark that:)
