Not sure what the original length is, but the shock size difference is a third of your suspension height - you want yours to go up about 60mm now, so you need a dummy shock 20mm longer than the current length.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, it was 556mm to the arch and now it's 466mm. The front needs to go a touch lower and that is 526mm so that's what I'm going to set the back for so I have roughly 10mm higher at the back

What it sometimes takes

Push system for the right hand arm torsion bar (seen from the rear)


Pull system for the left hand side arm torsion bar as a single bolt with nut wasn't enough.


Tip, leave the arb plates at least bolted onto the arb to prevent the arms being pushed out instead when trying to push out one of the torsion bars.
