Full length of rear struts

Post by tuonokid » Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:31 pm

Anyone on here got a rear strut off a 1.7 Puma near to hand as I need the length of one off the car and fully extended?
If anyone has I need the length of the strut from the centre of the bottom mounting bolt to the top of the threaded top.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Barry, I assume you mean without the spring, so shock absorber extended to its full travel?
I have some new ones in the garage. I will get some measurements later.
On a similar note, has anyone got a couple of old rear spring top plates kicking around? (Not the top mounts,the top spring seats)

700mm to the end of the shaft. There's 10mm of square section before the thread starts.
