    Are all Capri struts the same??

    Are all Capri struts the same??I know the 2.8 are different but what about the rest??

    I have 2 Capri struts which look identical but the caliper mount threads are different. One has 7/16 thread but the other has a coarse thread like an Escort MK2 strut but smaller in dia. Anyone know the size of the coarse threaded one??
    Thanks in advance

    3 litre struts are different but i thought that was more to do with the hubs and bearings.
    Other than that I believe they are all the same and would be surprised if the calliper threads were different on any Capri strut.

    Thank for reply.
    I had another look at this strut today and compared the two struts stub axles and both were the same as were the hub's. I got a metric bolt into caliper mount holes so figured at some point that's exactly what was forced into it. I borrowed a 7/16th tap and cleaned up the holes and all is good again.
