Think it's 348 but not sure it's been a while since I measured on. Is the Nitron on it's shortest setting on the ride height adjuster ?, mind you if 348 is right and it's at 355 thats 7mm longer, not too bad, I'd live with that but make sure there's no spacer on top of the top clevis.

Sorry Flatty. We are talking about shock length, not what yours is worthImage
