Fronts will fit.

On the rear you may need to space out the lower nuts slightly as the shocks will have longer pins. Reason being that from Td5-onwards (ish) the lower bushes changed to the type with the spot-welded cup on the axle bracket and these later type are slightly thicker than the good old fashioned rubber doughnut types..

Hi all , Fronts do fit but rears are too short (500mm centres on a tdci and 550mm on mine ) = ☹️

What do you mean "they do not fit"? There are lots of different lengths of shocks. If you are 550 mm at normal ride height, you have a big lift and would want longer than stock shocks or a lower shock mount.

I mean they are too short and clunk on the rebound , I measured the landlords 2016 plate 90 and mine ( which has genuine new take off tdci springs) and that’s the dimensions I found, don’t want to argue about lifts etc but don’t want anyone else to waste their money either , tdci chassis rails look thinner where the mountings are
