    Not true - the shocks are all the same.It's the springs that are different in that they are slightly shorter.

    he said something didnt match with my chassis number and i needed the more expensive 1's i thought the were all the same, but does it mean that the rod its self is longer? i know they will prob not last as long as they should with 45mm springs but longevity isnt on the top of my list just now! but just been looking at lmf for the b4's there not that much dearer and prob my best bet.

    Wrong, the sri, gsi and vxr have shortened sport shocks.

    Those shocks on ebay will be for the 3.2v6 elite

    Yeah you'd lose all of the stiffness and there would be the possibility of the springs jumping out of their seats
