newer wald struts have a larger axle hole and a smaller dropout eyelet hole ..

stand off spacers, in both cases will be a solution, if you have only the axle to mount the strut onto ,

get a longer axle , rebuild the wheel hub around it.. LBS should have a rear axle the longer would be in the rear..

you rededicate it as a front, with more end sticking out , x-fer the cones and bearings to the new axle

lock nut to hold the bearing adjustment etc.


then you have 1 set of nuts to hold the wheel into the fork,

some spacers , washers or you name it, and a second set of nuts to hold the rack on the axle.
