    Its pretty common knowledge that some fairly decent shocks can be had for the rear end of a e chassis, including wagon, for a pretty decent price. Obviously better stuff is on the market, such as trds tokicos etc. But here is a list of what can fit well and is more commonly available and can work for your budget or setup needs.


    Measurement Guide:
    Front Shocks (inserts):
    Extended Length = Extended length is from the bottom of the shock, to the bottom of the thread. (Not necessarily where the top spring carrier sits.)
    Body Length = Bottom of the body, to the top... pretty straight forward.
    Stroke Length = Extended length - Body... again, straight forward.

    Rear Shocks (eye bottom, pin top):
    Extended length = Center of the eye, to the bottom of the pin.
    Body Length = Bottom of the body, to the top...
    Closed Length = Center of the eye, to the bottom of the pin when compressed

    Front Insert Dimensions:

    AE86
    Body length: 402mm
    Extended length: 604mm
    Extended minus Body: 202mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm

    AE92:
    Body length: 336mm
    Extended length: 500mm
    Extended minus Body: 164mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm

    Celica T/RA63
    Body length: 405mm
    Extended length: 605mm (3dr hatch maybe shorter then this)
    Extended minus Body: 200mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm
    Shaft diameter: 22mm

    Corolla KE35:
    Body length: 414mm
    Extended length: 613mm
    Extended minus Body: 199mm
    Outside Diameter: 38mm

    Corona TT132
    Body length: 403mm
    Extended length: 600mm
    Extended minus Body: 197mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm

    AW11 S/C (rear shock)
    Body length: 345mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm

    Tokico HTS
    Body length: 332mm
    Extended length: 476mm
    Extended minus Body: 144mm
    Outside Diameter: 43.5mm

    Rear Shocks Dimensions:

    AE86
    Extended Length: 560mm
    Closed Length: 335mm

    Peugeot 505
    Extended length: 420mm
    Extended minus Body: 270mm
    KYB Twin Tube (Oil) Rating (344004): 1900/600

    Toyota Cressida/Mark II GX70 Station Wagon
    Dimensions unknown but good for AE86 rear shock, sim to Peugeot above, maybe stiffer

    Hilux (front shock)
    Extended length: 420mm
    KYB Monotube (Gas) Rating (KG5437): 3100/1000

    Mazda RX-7 Gen 1
    Extended Length: 540mm
    Closed Length: 323mm

    Celica T/RA63
    Extended Length: 620mm
    Closed Length: 320mm

    '82 Camaro (16" wheels)
    Extended Length: 486mm
    Closed Length: 309mm

    Tokico HTS
    Extended Length: 455mm
    Closed Length: 307.5mm

    Cheaper stuff

    Extended Length / Compressed length / Vehicle

    564 , 339 AE86, TE72, AE95, (too long to keep lowered spring captive)
    517 , 307 KE30
    517 , 307 Commodore wagon 78-92 , (good fit)
    504 , 314 Commodore wagon 93-97,
    482 , 297 XT130, RA60, KE36, KE38, KE70 wagon & early Holden , (perfect length and fitment)
    478 , 288 Escort sedan&coupe 74-82,
    473 , 288 Tarago 90's ,
    415 , 256 Suzuki 4WD front, (talked about)

    for wagon
    Try hilux rears, KG5437 length 420mm.






    If you have any information post as it can be added to the list. For front end stuff it might be a good idea to separate between ke and 86 id.

    Ke70 front struts - 41mm OD

    Ae86 struts - 50mm OD

    Any irs rear cleica will need longer rear shocks as short stroke rears to suit ae86 are pretty short.

    For the front there is the Celica shocks in the agx st185 , they are a bit shorter then ae86 shocks so good for coil overs or you can use spacers to prop them up higher
