Hi josh . I think what John said is convenient. 50mm Bilstein 300/100 . Eybach 275. Just a little complicated shipping to my country , Argentina . I'm sure this can give battle to Baratec . It only remains to know the price . It is good that you've found this forum people who understand the subject. despite my poor English ... hehe

Front completo ca; USD1400...postale no sabe

BUT please! what do you plan on the back of the car? Suspension should be balanced front to rear....

¿Qué piensas qué haces en la suspensión trasera de equilibrar con la suspensión delantera?
Es muy importante que ellos trabajan en conjunto ..
Y antes de que te pido es que permite que usted suelde en la carrocería de los soportes de suspensión?

Angel and John.
There are at least two styles of mk4 upright. The dimension where the strut slots in to the upright can vary. Some of the low powered cars had 256mm brakes with an integral brake caliper carrier, and they used smaller OD struts.

Only pointing this out because Angel states his car is a 1.6. If his car is using the original upright this could mean the car utilises the smaller brake setup which would have the smaller diameter strut design.

OK mi muchachito Ecosse, mille gracia...The damn Fords I like do the same sort of different powerz, or weight..or trim level..on the Sierra
Low power junk and USA Xratty is 45.5mm diameter and even originnal Cosworth 3 door..4x4 is 50.8mm...they early Fuckus is 45.5mm and later is 50.8--or something..Damn annoyiing.. Harumph!..Harumph!

O! Angel we must know what the diametro of bottom of strut very accurately..
here is bottom assembled:


And with strut pulled out.



The fit between strut and the "knuckle" is very imprtant to get correct.
