I read somewhere that struts or maybe spring perches were different in the MY06-MY08 years. I've tried searching that info but haven't come across it again. I remember the post explaining that fitting the later model suspension would clear larger tyres. Is it a direct swap to put in MY08 struts and coils into a MY04?

Can anyone confirm this? And possible direct me to that post??

No, I haven't. At a quick look they arent the posts that I had read about when putting in 2006-2008 suspension into a 2004. I'll sift through the first one you mentioned to see if i can glean anything from it. The second link looks like its about lowering - NOT what im after.

The post specifically addressed using later model suspension to clear larger tyres.

:?:

If you’re talking about the late SG suspension into an early SG model, then there’s no difference. Differences are elsewhere.

If you’ve mistakenly meant an SH’s suspension into an SG, then they’re radically different in the rear; not sure about the front suspension (small / large differences).

:idea:
