Shock measurements?

Hi guys,

Can anyone give me their shock measurement with a Haynes, 2.0l zetec sat on the ground etc, measured between the top and bottom mounts so I can set the distance on mine, no shocks yet but like to sit it close to what it will be. Front and rears

Assuming you’re going to drill some holes in some box section and then put these in as struts in place of the coilovers, I did this by putting a block of wood under the chassis front and back to get the ride height (140mm rear, 125mm front) and then measuring between the bolt holes to work out what length strut I wanted.

Hi. put your car to the ride height you need, chock it witj bits of wood etc under frame.
Then work out the bolt crs for front and rear shock length remembering to add 30mm for droop travel.

Here is a link to the typical dimensions for shock and the travel it will give.

Hi ya,


Cheers for that, will have to set it up when I can.
Was only because I have temporary shocks on it that I wanted to adjust on the bench off the car quickly.

Cheers!!!
