    Default Xantia struts.

    Hi Does anyone out there in Citland know of a way of putting S2 front struts into a S1 VSX Xantia.
    The S1 Vsx has large pipes whereas the S2 ,to the best of my [limited knowledge] he pipes on these are small.
    and Thanks,
    Pekay.

    The issues is Hydractive vs non-Hydractive pipes. Get parts from a S2 with Hydractive if you need to make that change.

    Thanks-I thought that the larger pipes were the hydractive system?.

    That is correct, there are hydractive and non hydractive series 1 and series 2 cars. In both cases , the hydractive cars struts have the larger pipes. You just need to get the series one struts replaced with the series 2 struts, regardless of whether or not the car is VSX. If the car is non VSX you use the struts with the small pipes, if it's VSX you use the struts with the large pipes. As long as you replace same size with same size, and replace series 1 struts with series 2 struts all will be well.

    Cheers...George 1/8th.
