|09/01/2006 16:48:01||Richard||How much do you want to spend? I think one of the viva's had a similar size. But it was probably a weird van version or something. You could measure the open and closed length (closed is the most important) and contact someone that deals in old stock dampers. To be honest I would buy some AVO adjustables and set them as close to the originals (the company is called chassis dynamics for AVO dampers).|

|12/01/2006 20:19:01||julian||F.Y.I. This site www.motorsportworld.co.uk also stocks brake pads, discs, shoes, hoses, and jetex exhausts etc for the 96.
Handy to know.
|13/01/2006 09:01:50||john||Any decent motor factor in the UK should be easily able to supply shocks, brake pads, shoes, brake hoses, etc. for a 95 or 96, I have found euro car parts particularly cheap for shocks in the past(less than £15 each).
|13/01/2006 12:24:28||Richard||Maybe if I remove a wheel, I will take up your off Al.|
|15/01/2006 14:30:59||David||Rear (lever arm) shocks for the 95 estate are becoming very difficult to find. I have managed to get a new nearside (left) one - if anyone has a new or reconditioned offside (right) one I could be interested - folding beer vouchers ready in hand!|
|15/01/2006 20:38:38||Trevor||lever arm shocks are readily available for lots of other classics e.g. Triumph, at Moss spare parts ,I don't know if these are the same they may be!|
