Can I use clio 172 cup rear shocks on 1.2?



yeah i probably do mean the dampers, the long cylinder bar thing lol
Yeah, all should be interchangeable on mk2 clios afaik

Looks like this?

Bolts are same size at bottom, I used 172 rear dampers on my old 1.2 and top mount hole in boot should be same size as they are the same shell

Someone else might confirm this but I am 10000000% sure they will fit perfect

yes mate thank you, Fred at BTM suggested that I get shorter shocks from the cup as atm when you jack the car up the spring shot out

Then yeah, they will definitely do the job mate, Fred knows his stuff and wouldn't suggest them if they wouldn't fit ;)

And I remember that pain, the shorter length will hold your rear axle higher to help hold the springs where they are

Fred fitted the springs and wheels for me today hes a legend :p
 
I do mate, very clean, and more to the direction 1.2's should be taken nowadays instead of the boisterous route I took and many other people did.

Looks really smart and fresh IMO mate
cheers mate, im finished with it now, got 182 interior, fully colour coded, 172 bumper, lowered and new wheels :p
