Mabrella front shock aborber help!

Hi, My partner has a Seat Marbella (fully aware its not a panda).
Basically im having trouble getting the correct front shock absorbers for the car and now own 2 sets of incorrect shocks.
The type that came on the car have the domed top mounts and a larger single nut M12 fitting with a slotted rounded nut securing it to the shocker before the top pressure plate on the engine bay side. (similar to a mk2/3 golf set up)
Ive been sent 2 sets of the opposite ones with the 3 bolt flat top mount shockers.
Anyone chopped the domes off and ran the three bolt set up?
Any Help would be greatly apreciated and if someone is in need of some shock absorbers shout me haha.
Many thanks

Re: Mabrella front shock aborber help!

hmm if you fancy using spring compressors i think you can just swap the tops around on the shocks to your original old ones. trying to remember here..

i dont think theres much difference in the bottom of the shocks but the tops can be changed around.

i take it that you bought them as a shock and spring combo?
