thats what i though too...

my only issue is nobody knows what an Isuzu Mu is .. i need to know the shock dimensions in order to get some shocks that fit. . They have the Isuzu Amigo and the isuzu Rodeo but im still not sure if their shocks will fit. . i think the Amigo has a coil set up in the rear.

Find and Australian distributor for Bilstein, get the part number and order the corresponding shocks from the US if it's cheaper.
