2003 156 2.4 JTD

Replacing a 2003 2.4JTD Veloce shock with one from a 1999 Petrol non-Veloce

Can it be done? Had an absolute mare at the MOT and have an almost complete 1999 Petrol 156 to break.

I know the Veloce has different suspension, but will it fit? Not worried about the ride, can change the other shock to match if needed.

Also would like to take one of the front top suspension arms and a rear caliper, which should be grand.

Any help GREATLY appreciated.

You want yes or no and I am not certain. Almost 100% certain that all the dimensions are the same and it will be only the spring and damper rates that are different. Hub carrier will probably be different due to different drive shafts and bearings.

Rear calipers should be different unfortunately. They changed around 2001 to a bigger disc.
