Question Will E28 shock absorbers fit on my E34?

Hello everybody,

I need to change the rear shock absorbers on my E34. While searching for E34 shock absorbers, I found some for E28 at a very good price and I want to know if it's possible to mount them on my car.

Thank you!
Daniel Moldovan

Yes they will fit but they are made for a lighter car so I would not use them. I have sent cars to the junk yard with e28 rear shocks so that the gas tank would not rub on the ground.
