I'm probably taking mine out during the weekend since I'm swapping out the blown shocks and temp replacing with Bilsteins till I get my new coilover setup.

I got older ST's but it's the same as KW. I can measure top to bottom and let you know, but that will be on a used and abused set that will most definetly have some sort of sagging. keep that in mind

So I got around to installing the Bilstein's this weekend and took some measurments and pictures of the spring for you. Notice that the driver side is shorter than the passenger. Incidentally the shock was by far the worse on that side, completley blown almost no oil left inside.


Driver Side 7.8 inches


Passenger side 8 inches


I also decided to weigh the srping, why I have no idea, anyways it came in just shy of 2.5kg
