GTS PANTHER - Upright Choice

Hi guys I have purchased a GTS Panther kit, does any body know what uprights are to be used with the kit Cortina or Sierra?

Many Thanks

Both, it was a choice you made when buying. You will need to identify what you have, by measuring them up and comparing

Mine are Sierra

As big-vee-twin says the kit could be specified with either.
Measure the distance from the bushes to the ball joints and iíll compare with mine.
I have the Sierra uprights.

It was just the top wishbones that where differant. Shorter for the Sierra. I did have the drawings once upon a time.

Just looked at the drawing I have and it shows 242mm from bush tube centre to the outer edge of the top link tube - this is for Sierra uprights.

If you need either sierra or Cortina uprights I have a pair of both to sell (with calipers).

Turns out I have the sierra setup...thanks for all the help guys.

I had hoped that I had the cortina setup as I prefer the simpler upright design and reduced weight, but Sierra it is!
