    Default fuego rear shock length

    Damn.. third time I've tried to post.

    Advertisement


    Measured the shocks, but vauge on where from, hence pictures. (to follow)


    All top measure are taken from where the shaft finishes.

    open measures..





    closed measure. I put the bump stop up to the shaft end and closed the shock.



    The threads/shafts are about 50mm and the bumpstop about 55mm

    Hope this helps,
    Jo

    I just replaced the Koni shocks the car was wearing, with these old OE shocks.......


    I didn't realise how bad the Koni's were making the car, and putting these 30 year old OE shocks on has made a large improvement...

    I'm kissing my front OE dampers goodnight every night in the hope they might last a little longer .

    The front end is all back together now. Just need an alignment. I'll setup some string lines tomorrow to set the toe somewhere in the right ball park.

    The Fuego doesn't know what hit it.

    It's had more work done on it in a week than it has in the last 2 years
