Hi

Sorry I have been away all weeks so couldnt measure them.

I will have to look for the paperwork from Protech as I cant find it and it will have all the details on it. They were designed to give a 5exi the same set up as Krazy Kens car. IIRC 350 springs on the front and 300 springs on the rear. I have measured the shocks and with the springs adjusted to what they were when they came off the car the fronts are 33cm top to bottom bolt, and the exposed shaft is 10cm. rear 37cm top to bottom bolt, and 11cm exposed shaft.

They are single adjustable and the bush is what would have come as standard from protech.

Does that answer you question?

If your close and want to have a look at them your welcome.

Ta
Alex

Hi had a look at the springs and not sure what you need me to measure and check. Maybe I am being dumb! If you can let me know I will measure them later
