    I'm guessing maybe you misread my post? I like the OE electronic lsd. At least on dirt.

    BTW, Paul at TIM didn't have my TD ProRally wheels, but was able to order them from UK for a decent price.

    Mine is an inverted strut so a little difficult to determine stroke since it's on the car. The polished hydraulic unit sticks up 6". That would imply 6" stroke at the strut and perhaps a bit more...

    Someone, perhaps Alex, punched a strut through his shock tower. That's what we're trying to avoid by supplying adequate jounce travel. But since we have only so much total travel available you need...

    Word I got from others is there are no USA distributors currently, nor likely any 108's on shelves. So best bet would be used.
