there doesn't seem to be any hard and fast rules as to which cars have what diameter struts, i.e model and year etc. I was told this by a couple of tuners when ordering parts for my golfs, I was adviced the best thing to do is measure what you have fitted :happy2:

Al at Awesome said that 90% of MK5s were 55mm, easiest way is to get a piece of string around the shocker body, then measure then divide by pi.
