    Macpherson strut is basically a shock absorber with the spring combined as one.

    No, because the only way to be sure what size bushes you need is by measuring the ARB or by looking at the part number written on the side of the bushes you already have fitted. Vauxhall didn't record what size ARBs they fitted to specific cars when they were built, so the parts catalogue doesn't state it either.
