New shocks arrived – I didn’t even have to negotiate with the factory. ?A few exchanges with one of their senior engineers about the problem, acceptance that I was correct, and a new set in the post.
Fresh out of the box:
Pretty much identical to the old ones, just a couple of inches longer.
Installed. Why did I need longer ones? ?Well, in attempting to setup the rear IRS geometry it was clear that I just was not going to get the ride height I needed – things just weren’t going to line up without my ending up with just about zero suspension travel. ?Which would not be much fun.
