I have wondered are the front and rear shocks the same on gtv's but on inspection found my rear are FK yellow shocks and blue springs and look completely different in look and design to the front ones which look massive in comparison the springs coil-over the actual shock, The springs themselves being blue in the front also but the shocks black with no brand markings on them. So the last link you have there to GTV rear shock absorber will be suitable for the front end of my gtv? thanks for help.
Sorry, I confused myself (was in a bit of a hurry) and got some things wrong...
, of course rear shock absorbers does not fit in the front, you need to find a shock absorber that fit with this part numbers or an equivalent to them,
(E4584)-it seems that the bracket for attachment of droplink is missing on this even though it is listed to fit.
(G35217)- it seems that the bracket for attachment of droplink is missing on this even though it is listed to fit.
That I tried to describe was that you probably need a shock absorber with a bracket to connect the droplink of the anti-roll bar (that shock absorber with an X over in the other link's picture).
Hopefully this is of better help.
Alfastumper have one that should fit, Type 2.
