    Any updates on potential US availability for these?

    I sent him a message to inquire since it is after the holidays. He is still interested, but still needs to research what paperwork he would need to put together to send them to the US. I'm not sure if that is just for customs, or some sort of DOT thing.

    Not sure if he's a manufacturer or a reseller, But if he's actually the one putting the kits together, he should contact Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) to see about becoming a supplier, They would already be familiar with all the import requirements, since they already deal with a lot of non US companies, and that would get his product into several US retail companies. Most notably 4wd.com and 4 Wheel Parts.

    Reseller for the local manufacturer that makes the FCA struts.

    He probably wouldn't want to contact Transamerican then, They would want to deal with the actual manufacturer, and would just cut him out.

    Just inquired again today if they're was any progress on his end in figuring out the required paperwork to ship to us on the USA.

    Waiting to hear back.

    Given the current situation in Italy I don't expect moving on this for a while. :(

    Thanks for the link. Lots of interesting information. We'd love to be able to buy the setup, but Ghybli has never shipped to the US so is unsure how to proceed with Customs, so we're waiting to hear if it is possible.

    Where can I buy these from? and are you happy with the performance of these shocks?

    I could be wrong, but I'm curious if he has just figured out which strut from a different vehicle that results in this lift.
    Only thinking this, because back in my Suzuki Sidekick days - we used to used shocks from a Crown Vic on the rear axle, and RRO had a 2" longer strut for the front ends. I used to have a Monroe chart with specifications on all their struts and shocks.
