Ok guys I've identified the rear shocks as bilstein b6. I'm assuming the springs are standard. I've measured to the measuring point spokes shared above and I get 235mm which is apparently is rs height.. which I find hard to believe as the car sits like a 4x4.

I know all cars vary but maybe someone with a rs height could give me this measurement?

Yes, that's still higher than mine is at RS height in the back. I just went and measured it on the top of the wheel arch at 24.5" (~62.25 cm) Did you measure from the proper boss on yours? There are two locations at the rear depending on the year I think.

Also make sure you are using the right distance for the right measuring point. Here is the section from the shop manual
223 +- 5mm for measuring at control arm
235 +- 5mm for measuring at outer control arm mount

Ugg, how did I never see that thread. It would have saved me a lot of second guessing the first time I measured.

Yes that's the one I've got my measurement from. I'm starting to get a bit concerned as both sides are different. I'll try get photos and measurements from both sides tonight.

Now that's a good point. The drivers side is about 20mm higher on mine. I've never noticed it before so wondering if something's happened when I've had the car jacked up.. both adjustments are all the way down.

That's weird. I just took the car up to my workshop to get proper measurements and mine still doesn't add up the same as yours.. unless say 12mm at the measuring point doesn't equal 12mm at the tyre to body gap? Be interested if some others could share their measurements! Thanks for taking the time to do that for me.

Here are the definitive measurements!

235mm to the control arm measuring point on both sides, which is rs+12mm

650mm to the guards.

The gap seems to be different on both sides by 5 or 10mm Not sure if that's anything to worry about.
