Astra and landy shocks-alternatives for lwb with add a leafs-checking

Post by sj_durham » Sat Jul 18, 2020 11:17 pm

Am i correct that...

Astra Estate Mk2 Rear Shock Absorbers 1982-1993 Fit on the front

and...

Land Rover Series 2 & 3 Rear Shock 88 SWB RTC4232 Also fit on the rears?


The Sj is standard other than the add a leafs but i did read they were a good addition elsewhere so wanted to check if it was true and correct before i but them

Thanks
Mick

I've got mk2 astra springs on mine i think I had to drill bushes on one set to fit on the bottom pin unless that was my vitara. And I think once they sent upside down mounted shocks. Probably my error
