Two new suspension dampers for sale - SOLD

Postby Mutley00 » Sun 11.02.2018, 17:13

Profuse apologies, but I dont know whether they are front or rear. I cant find the reference numbers in the Deroure catalogue either.

They have the following ID marks on them, together with a lime green and a yellow sticky label:

B100C0123F
MADE 010672
8116 2974 1HB


Please eMail me if you are interested and I can send you a high res image.

Thanks and regards, Andrew

Thanks for the info. Any idea how much they are worth. The Deroure catalogue states £290 for front dampers which seems a hell of alot of money!

Cheers

Sent a pm asking how much, the answer came back Deroure have thm for £200-£300 each.

There was a seller on ebay who was selling several pairs of these a few years ago for £30 a pair.

So I offered £30 +p+p and haven't had the courtesy of a response.

Is the ride height 5mm lower or higher as compared to the European?

On the basis the MGB and XJS were 'jacked up' and fitted with huge rubber bumpers to suit the American legislation, I'd guess 'higher' ... :lol:

Yep, higher if fitted to a UK car - but less so on a FED car due to the weight of the crash structure etc at the front.
