We have to find out, its strange !

I can't get the information about stroke on KYB Europe but Subforest72 orders KYB and Pedders shocks for his garage so I'll ask him to measure.

The SG shocks (oem) I measured on a previous post come out of a '03 SG 5MT N/A

SG5 for the NA models and SG9 for the turbo, is it ? Do the '06-'08 models have another code than the '03-'05 models ?
EU/JP/Australia
ModelCode:
SG5= 2,0l (NA and TC)
SG9= 2,5l (NA and TC)

US
ModelCode
SG6 = 2,5l (NA and TC)

All codes apply for model year 2003-2008, there is no further Difference for the Facelift build 06-08.

Yes this is correct. The number is the engine size & is used for all models of Subaru with H6 & FA/FB engines & diesel engines using letters.

5 = 2.0L
6 = 2.2L except in the US where it also is 2.5L
9 = 2.5L

Finally have an answer about KYB SG front struts for the European market. Stroke is 175mm. I wonder why we have more stroke than the Australians.

And the OEM SG struts I have from an '03 XS have 185mm stroke...I don't understand all these differences !

All measures are without bumpstops.

I'm making a check-up of the Foz because I'm going for a 5 day offroad trip, all good but found that the springs have sagged a little, about 15mm front and 10mm rear, nothing too bad because I can change the spring seat heights but I already was at maximum height front before spring block (10cm with the Eibach 16" 125lbs/inch barrel). The rear are ok, still have some margin.

Luckily, I have some 150lbs/inch Eibach 16" barrel type springs from my previous Proflex coilovers, just need to swap them !
