Hmmmm!

I don't think that Subaru made different CV axles for the SG "like yours" ! Are your shafts extended at their maximum length ? Because if your struts are worn, you maybe have to pull the shafts out to get maximum length.

140mm is with shafts pulled. Without pulling on shafts is only 130mm.
I guess it must all be in the different A arms, the suspension must follow a different arc down.

KYB advertise 3 different part numbers for front SG shocks. 2L and 2.5 NA both have 123mm stroke and 2.5 turbo has 135mm stroke.

I wonder if European models are different to Australian models?

We have to find out, its strange !

I can't get the information about stroke on KYB Europe but Subforest72 orders KYB and Pedders shocks for his garage so I'll ask him to measure.

The SG shocks (oem) I measured on a previous post come out of a '03 SG 5MT N/A

SG5 for the NA models and SG9 for the turbo, is it ? Do the '06-'08 models have another code than the '03-'05 models ?
EU/JP/Australia
ModelCode:
SG5= 2,0l (NA and TC)
SG9= 2,5l (NA and TC)

US
ModelCode
SG6 = 2,5l (NA and TC)

All codes apply for model year 2003-2008, there is no further Difference for the Facelift build 06-08.

Yes this is correct. The number is the engine size & is used for all models of Subaru with H6 & FA/FB engines & diesel engines using letters.

5 = 2.0L
6 = 2.2L except in the US where it also is 2.5L
9 = 2.5L
