help, please with volvo 440

I live in nigeria-africa, recently (nov. 2006) i bought a 1994 volvo 440, all the shocks seem to have busted, i have laid my hands on a pair for the rear but cant seem to find replacements for the font, is it possible to use shocks from some other make like peugot, renault or some how fix them? thanks

They are a strut-type of shock. The internal cartridge is removable from the coil spring support.

The correct model for Volvo 440 from the KYB catalogue is 333100/1

The KYB part reference page show it only fits Volvo 440 so no substitute is possible.

You will have to order these parts, but they are still available.

If you are good with tools, you could mount an external shock on your strut. Make sure the shock will extend and compress the same distance as your spring.
