Hi Andrew, one of them was branded "Dream", there's a certain irony about that! One was meant to be a Febi, but it was identical to the Dream, with no markings whatsoever, and not for a second do I believe it was a genuine Febi part. Not sure on what brand the one from Amazon was, will take a look and let you know. They will work, so long as pins 1, 4 and 5 are the only ones required, maybe that's why your one is ok. Pins 2, 3 and 6 are used for the ehc, so if yours had been done away with for springs then that could explain it.

Used it quite a bit today and so far so good. But...all that driving around with the suspension jacked up has killed something on the back and I have a nasty knocking that needs looking at. Sounds like drop links, but I have only just replaced these. So next job is to identify where my knock is coming from.
