can shorter lambdas be bought

Hi

i have a small problem , where i have placed the threaded lambda ring in the rear downpipe
the space i have to screw it in is a 10mm to small, although i could loosen the subframe to get it in and then tighten it back up , i thought i could get a new lambda as i guess the present ones are old and get a shorter one solving further issues.

thanks

As an update i can not get it to fit lowering the subframe.

So its either a shorter lambda if they do such a thing or i will have to put in another ring

MOST Lambda's I've seen are all the same length. What car is this for? Can you post a picture and your measurements here? maybe of the suggested install place too... I have a few lambda's I can compare...

i will post some pics shortly , but as a update searching through my odds and sods 1 of my o2 sensors is 5mm shorter then the others and i think this maybe enough to get it in place. i have noticed the sensors look different that being the case i need to ask do they all work the same as i think this shorter one comes from the rear cat .
car is 156 2.5 2003 cf3

its a NTK LAMBDA SENSOR / O2 SENSOR (NGK7904) - OZA659-EE59 can i use this on the front ?

The location is the rear bank and the threaded hole is facing the rear of the car so the end of the sensor is fouled by the steering rack . but as mentioned i might be able to get the sensor in as its shorter and by lowering the rear engine mount just hope it clears the rack when i tighten the mount back up.
I will try tomorrow . fingers crossed

Let me know how it goes , But i have fixed mine for the moment i shaved 1mm off the fitting ring lowered the rear engine mount cut the sensor wires so i could screw it in without the cable getting all twisted up. Just need to refix the wires and all will be good.
But if the elbow works i will fit one for just the future removal ease.

Thanks guys for replies and info
