cabrioman is on a distinguished road

The sierra compression struts bolt straight on, some depending on make may need to be cut down.

The only thing to watch out for is there are two PCD spacings for the chassis mounting brackets, one for standard Sierra and one for the 4x4 Cosworth. I think from memory they are 90mm and 95mm respectively.

You may want to consider buying the struts from Compbrake in conjunction with their adjustable TCA's. They sometimes do some good bundle deals from time to time. The adjustable arms make a massive difference to the adjustment of the front Camber.

Adjustment using the daft standard shimming method is almost impossible on the Cabrio with the wings in place and quite often the studs fitted by Marlin were too short to allow the required number of shims.
