    Which rear shock absorbers for 4wd Turbo -86 ?

    Hi,
    The car is 323 4wd Turbo HB 1986 (BF1).
    Which rear shock absorbers do fit it, really?

    I have tried to look at a variety of comparison tables.
    This car is known in a few tables.
    The tables are quite mixed and incompatible with each other.

    OEM shock absorbers have not been available since 1995.
    Now there has been KYB 633078 / 633079, but they are no longer available.

    Which shock absorber's main dimensions are almost the same?
    The car is the Klassic-registered, so only OEM styled shock absorbers are suitable.

    Try the 86-87 Mazda 626. They will fit using washers to shim the inside of the mounting ears.

    Lower fastening is no problem, the shim plates and a new hole. (holes distance only 55mm)
    But the 626's shocks have almoust 40mm too big spring seats dia.

    Now I was able to measure 626 GC1 strut.
    This older model (9/82 -) seems to be suitable.
    I have to try.
