Strut size!

Post by Chrispope26197 » Tue May 14, 2019 9:43 pm

Need help with what the size of the struts are on my caddy

It’s a 2007 sdi. If anyone knows that’d be great!

The best thing to do is to measure your struts where they enter the hub.
Being 12 years old you cannot be sure they have not been changed.

the SDI "should" have 50mm but there is no guarantee.

They didn't come from the factory with 55mm to my knowledge.

That's probably best if you can't measure your strut diameter.

Don’t do what I did and buy the wrong size, strip out your old ones only then to realise it’s all got to go back together.
