This is the response I got from strange about their 10-way single adjustable front struts:

"The stroke on both of our struts is 6.30". The tube diameter on both is 2.22". the overall length on the 87-93 strut is 13" and the 94-04 is 14.40". This is measured from the center of the bottom mounting hole to the mounting stop on the shaft with the strut fully compressed."

I need to pull one of my QA1's off and compare.

wow....I just called strange and got nothing close to that...she said 15 1/4" collapsed and 21 3/4" fully extended for the 94-04 struts...wtf...

I have Tokico Illumina's now and was looking for maybe some more travel....goin to measure them now.

so is the 6.30" the "travel" of the strut?? then they are basically the same for travel...just one has a shorter base.
