see what I mean?

just received this from Martin. What did I tell you...he is great at research!

Hi Peter,
I feel like im getting somewhere
I found out the open/close length, for a j type shock, and its 15” open and 10” closed.

This into metric is 254mm closed, and 381mm open.

Looking through the internet, I found that beetles, and early camper vans have shocks which are Very close to this size.

Have a couple of links which I found.
This one should translate, it did for me.



a couple of options,
what do you think?

Hi
I have a post on my site where I have fitted some new shocks that have similar dimensions. This might help also. Please take a look.
