Astra MK2/3 shocks

Will a pair of front shock absorber inserts for a mk2 Astra fit a mk3?

They look pretty similar but I dont want to buy them if they wont fit??????

Hmm, should I risk it then.....:think

They look the same to me...? But if they dont fit I've wasted my money:shame:

Sorry mate, they won't quite fit. When I had an Astra a few years ago I tried fitting a set of Cav shocks to the Astra with no joy, so I'd say it's safe to assume they won't work the other way too.

Cavs are definately different but think that mk2 and mk3 Astras use the same legs and top mounts so its a bit of a guess but think they will fit

Ah, but from the part numbers the cav/mk3 Astra ones are the same, so I reckon I'll hold out for some that will defo fit.

Just wanted these as they are Monroe sensomatics and I had them on the TD, and they are superb!

Thanks peeps:)
