No doubt someone will come along and correct me but I believe that the height correctors used on GS's, BX's, CX's and possibly early Xantias are interchangeable.

what is the problem with your height corrector as they very seldom give any trouble,
and if and when they leak you can buy all the rubbery bits from the like of

99% off the time they just require a good clean out with petrol and new rubbery bits

Oh thanks Malcolm never even heard of that site before.

Everything is ok apart from the aforementioned strut returns. I'm just thinking as parts are getting rarer if it's worth holding on to one or two bits.
