How much " shorter are those ?

Are they also adjustable ?
About inch and a half, and no the ones i use are not, I never look for adjustable ones whatsoever, the 90% of the guys i see with adjustable front shocks after a conversion like this just go for the hard setup and forget about them, so why should i look for adjustability? anyway the only adjustment u get from them is from soft to hard, and the 98% of the guys who do this setup is just for looks not for function, :roll: That is why i dont care about adjustability, the Tercel ones have being proven to low 7 seconds on the 1/4 mile by most of the racers in PR back in the day, now they use Strange struts, cuz they are getting in the 6's :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I thought the reason why they leave it is the pain needed to demount everything to adjust them :D
