Pictured Above: Here you can see the difference in the size of the shock rod's between the Nissan Competition Shocks, a Nissan OEM replacement cartridge and the Illumina BZ3099 used as a current replacement. The use of the current Illumina's required drilling the center hole in the upper shock mounts out to just larger than 14mm.
