Yeah, thats why I was interested: I now use 944 shocks (Koni yellow) and they have their (shortenend) bump stop about the same time as my (also shortenend) trailing arm bump stops. Its a good match therefore for my current ride height.
These in the pic seem shorter, more inbound travel possibility, which could be helpfull if you were to go even lower in the rear.
Looks like Remmele coil-overs to me, but not sure..

What about Protech shocks recommended by ricola?
For those with steel arms, they come in 1.9" which gives better clearance from the CV boots and reasonably priced..
you can opt for extended base, choose btw bushing or bearings etc..
But gotta check if they have springs higher than 400lbs..

You must 'design' your own shock with them as they will ask what dimensions you'll want and you will have to wait and see if what they make from that is what will fit and work.
I'd rather have a shock/coil-over strut that has proved itself on my application (bug or 944), but the price difference is huge, which makes it all the more difficult..

Third set for aluminum arms is under construction, same as last



AVO has also many shock lengths, i helped pick up coilovers from AVO for my friends homemade a-arm project for his 1960 beetle.

Yeah, those are ok. They include necessary bolt extensions at bottom end. Choose atleast 450lbs springs, or better 500lbs. Ask from subaruengined beetle owners what springs they are using?

Humble,

I'm running your setup and am curious about what you're getting up to?
I am building my own uni's at the moment and would love to know how you're planning on using these parts?

more info?
