Good to hear it Chris. How did you adjust them in the end?

Does anyone know the lengths needed or are these not possible to be used on the standard suspension?

Looking online the standard rears are only 100mm long in total so all of these options would be way too long. Fronts are 200mm as standard I believe too so again to short for these solutions.

Really like the idea of DIY making some for a small fun project and a sense of achievement.

Interested, if you can find the link Pop Corn

Buy a pair of these :

and get your local machine shop to machine them down to the required length, then re-drill and re-tap them M8.

The OP bought 4 cheap items for £24 back in 2014, in my experience their life expectancy wouldn’t be long.
I’m not convinced about the benefits of using the rubber boots in UK weathered either, they seem to hold condensation in and cause massive corrosion issues if my experiences are anything to go by.
