OME

Hi all
Just a quick note, I will be at the Victorian Day of the VW in Cranbourne, I had purchased
some front old man emu struts for the 16'' which didnt fit so had the bilstein rebuilt. I need
to sell them if any one is interested, see me then. Ill sell them below cost price which were
purchased from ARB.
Cheers all see you at the show
Regards
Mark
Good to hear from you, Mark.
 
Haven't heard from many others but hope for a good turn-out.
 
I hope also that Andrew and Melissa are there.  Their recent Syncro modification will be well worth seeing if they get there.  Andy, I will have my camera and hope to use it !!

What year is your syncro?
What part number is the OME?
I thought that 16" shocks would fit a 14".
If you ask for 1991 shocks they will give you T4 shocks as their catalogue is wrong.
I have tried to explain to them, but they will not listen.

Hi Phill
The struts were purchased from ARB which they sell as old man emu. I thought the struts
would fit also so I was stumped why it didnt. part number is N38S. Anyway the whole
front end has been rebuilt so nice and tight again, so if anyone is interested let me know,
Im in Melbourne. The other thing Phill the lower control arm is from the earlier model
syncros from 86-88 which had the welded control arms, it was a special order for the
rally. But Im sure OS they fit alot of OME to the earlier models.
Regards
Mark

There is no difference in shock absorbers between early and late syncros.
What did you end up using and what did they replace?
How much do you want for them?
