Hi. Can anyone tell me the length of the strut (gas) from the top nut to the start of the housing (chrome part). I am fitting a spring but the mechanic at work thinks the strut is goosed. Thanks Jim

I can measure one tomorrow early afternoon - I have 2 good ones sitting in the garage. How is the length going to tell you if they're goosed or not? Surely leakage & general lack of resistance will tell you?

Hi. The mechanic at work thought that the top part should be longer, so I just got a new one from ECP and fitted that, same lenght by the way.
Thanks for the reply. Jim
