W124 Wagon SLS Strut to shock conversion DIY

Hopefully now you wagon guys have a few more performance/lowering options for your rides.

Even made it into a nice PDF for you guys.

You mentioned that you put Gabriel Hi jackers in your dad's wagon, was it lowered? Also, what was the car that had the right length shock you ordered for? Not for our cars obviously so which car fit? Those look to be a pretty cheap shock which is nice. Thanks in advance!

I just emailed that ebay guy about the shocks and he wanted to know where exactly the dimensions you gave are from? Center of eyelet to the top of the stud on top or the bottom of the threads on top or...? Also, what diameter is the hole in the eyelet and what is the width? Any info would be helpful. Thanks for the PDF by the way! I have been wanting to do this to my car for a while and was praying for someone like you to have already done it and do a DIY. Thanks alot!
