Measuring the strut diameter

This is how you measure the strut diameter of the car

When ordering a suspension kit for your car, there are numerous data that need to fit together to ensure that your car will pass inspection later on.

In some cases, we need to know the diameter of the strut. Since it won't be possible to find these data in the car's registration information, it's necessary that you, manually, measure the diameter of the vehicle's strut.

Measuring the strut is super easy - just follow this guide:
