The offsets are from the 710.

Junk them and save yourself time and bother. The stokers have the smaller wheel bearings, too long to lower, not much for calipers that would bolt on and dinner plate rotors.

Well I just sold a pair locally in less than 2 minutes after posting it on Facebook. There is interest in the stock 510 struts after all... I'm surprised. If you want to send a pair over here, I had another person interested.

150$, exactly what I paid for my zx struts

They were complete and very clean. I'm petty sure they could be bolted right in and go.

I found it interesting how many lengths of stock struts were in the pile
strut sizes (68)330 (69)335 (70+)340 (goon)355 measured from the drain hole on the perch to the machined bottom (the welds were not consistent to measure from)
