Hey Chaps,

Does the KYB EUROPE 363010 fit S2 front struts, are the tubes all the same S2 and S3 ?

S2 and S3 struts are different as S3 has the bigger stub axle and bearings.

I believe the tubes are the same though.

I knew what you meant. I wanted to clarify so when someone looks it up in a years time it's clear to them.

We will leave the order open unless we hear differently from you and if there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know.

I think I will cancel as this could go on forever :twisted:
