    Escort Mk1/Mk2 300/70 (long) Group 1/Group 4 Bilstein strut insert


    Total length: 610mm


    Body length: 320mm


    Escort Mk1/Mk2 300/70 (short) competition ( tarmac) Bilstein strut insert


    Total length: 565mm


    Body length: 293mm

    Body length is the shiney 40mm part, there is about 20mm at the top that has the identification on it.

    Below is Short V's Capri 2.8i



    These are mine which are NOS short tarmac bodies & inserts. They are even shorter than the new short tarmac ones.

    where can i find short 300/100 for the capri top, or even for the escort top , i can modify the top , but i need short 300/100.

    I used to run 300/70 long, they where running with just 1.5 inch travel, so i need to buy shorter then i would use harder spring and harder shock.

    Thanks Guys

    PS it a MK2 with a cossie for hillclimb.
