Next on my vast things-that-need-to-be-fixed list (it never ends! :lol: ) : Shocks & Struts

What can I say? I'm tired of the suspension going cartoony every time I run over an amoeba. This'll have to take priority over replacing the back panel (I must say I'm glad the rain's stopped for now. :biggrin: ).

I recall Rotated saying the following a while back:

The new front shock inserts and rear shocks, now fitted.:smile: 

A word of warning, however.  If you do go to change your struts, there are two types listed for our vehicles - one model suits up to CB2MS - 543XXX, and after that, the other part number.

Here is a visual picture of why - on the left (up to 543XXX), on the right (after 543XXX).  There is a 25mm difference in the housing height, so early model will not fit later model!

I am really glad I replaced the rear shocks, there was no rebound left in either of them!

So according to my car's VIN, my car's of the after 543XXX variety. Could somebody tell me the part # for these items?

Did any other car come with these parts or were these exclusive to 626's? Were all 1980 models after 543XXX?

 

Thanks!
