50mm or 55mm strut


New member
Hello, I recently purchased a 2013 Golf TDI. Ive searched but I’m having a hard time finding out which size struts my car should have a 50mm or 55mm. Would really appreciate if anyone could help me out.

IIRC, the Mk6 had the same struts across all lines. The MK7 has two different sizes, 50 for the Golf and GSW, 55 for Alltrack, R and GTI.

My 2011 mk6 gt 140 tdi golf has 55mm struts, however when I was buying my new struts, it showed 50mm struts aswell for my car. Because I was unsure, I ordered both sizes, I then returned the ones I didn’t need.

I know this is an old thread, but thought this might help others out there. If you're unsure if you VW has 50 or 55mm struts, hre is a video on how to measure.VW Strut Assembly - 50 or 55mm? - YouTube

Also 50mm strut assemblies are almost impossible to find. When I recently replaced my jetta struts(because of a broken spring), I came across a company that is selling the complete 50mm strut assemblies.

Hopefully this helps.
