Length of T3 Syncro rear dampers

Postby SYNCRO-VIKING » 15 May 2016, 17:40

Quick question:

Has anyone got the lengths handy, both for fully extended and fully compressed, centre hole to centre hole?
In inches or centimetres, does not matter.
I might be able to get some dampers here in Bulgaria, but the Syncro is almost unknown, hence the question.

Thank you very much,

360mm
590mm

width of bushes 41.95mm

Land Rover Discovery2 are a cheap alternative that don't take much to make them fit and are longer than stock, damp more weight both sprung and unsprung not suprisingly

somewhere I have a print out of the full technical findings on the stock and disco2 ones that Fabzz did, he may have the data on computer

And the damping characteristics of the LRD2 ones are suitable for the Syncro?
Mine is empty or lightly laden most of the time, only occasionally taking building materials home c 15 miles,
and for a long-distance camping trip it would be about half laden.

Thank you for your input.
