Many years ago I got these new shockabsorbers as a job-lot of Fulvia parts.   They are not for a Fulvia (nor I presume a Flavia).   What are they for?

Stamped into the body is :-  TIPO 50.02023   ANT   04 CN   One has 56410, the other 56372

Eyelets take 8mm bolts, and centres are 345mm apart.

Thank you for your help

Hi Roddy,
another pair looking very similar are currently for sale on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390024565162&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

But they have a Lancia part number and are marked as 818.100 - Rears for Fulvia Berlina.

Hello Brian - Thank you for the information.   Yes, they do look similar.   My experience is limited to coupé/Sport units which usually have an off-set eyelet at the bottom.   Also they are at maximum expansion at 345mm eyelet centre to centre, which is considerably shorter than a coupé/Sport needs.   Perhaps the S1 saloon, with the lower ride height, just needs shorter units.   You don't fancy having a crawl under FAY with a tape measure, do you???   (Might be to your advantage, as I was about to dump them!)

Kind regards - Roddy

Hello Roddy,
I'm taking "Fay" out for a run over the weekend complete with tape measure Cheesy and I shall have a look.
Is it possible that the number stamped on the body 56372 might be 52372? as I've found a reference under shock absorbers to 52372.
I'd hoped the technical section of the manual would give open & closed lengths of them, but it only gives values for testing on special equipment.

Best Regards
Brian
