    hi

    i've ordered some coilovers not long ago and was waiting for them to come but the sellers hasn't sent them because they need to know the strut size becuase there are 2 different sizes apparently 50mm and 55mm

    my car is an audi a3 2.0 tdi sport 04 reg

    does anybody know which size my front struts will be?

    any help would be hugely appreciated

    just want my coilovers on asap

    cheers

    Very likely to be 55mm. Easiest way to be sure is to measure.

    Sorry only just seen your reply.

    Not a prat at all - it's the base of the strut, where it goes into the hub.

    Pretty sure it'll be 55mm, but wouldn't like to say for sure 100%.

    The only way to be 100% sure is to measure. Otherwise it's just a guess.
