Suspension measurement

    Can anyone tell me the total height of one of the rear struts (mounting point at the base of the suspension to mounting point at the top of the strut tower) while it is ON THE CAR?

    Also, at the rear what is the width from strut top to strut top? (the length of a rear strut tower bar, for example).

    Any degree of accuracy is ok, but the more accurate the better :)

    There are measurements in the Body Section of the FSM, the last page 46 (DTA manual) has reference to the strut tower centres, but you'll probably have to read the whole section to verify the reference points.

    Cheers, I'm a bit of a fool as I actually looked at the Body Section, looked at that very page but didn't see the diagram, guess I should have read it :) Pity it doesn't give the lower mounting coordinate, then I'd have everything I need.

    You're welcome to look at mine and take whatever measurements you need if you like.
