Hello!

The 306 coilovers whon't fit the MK3 Berlingo model for sure.

You need to search for cars with similar charriot. Try the Peugeot 307, Citroen C4 models etc.

Searching for the part numbers isn't good ideia because the suspension of the berlingo will be for sure different than the other cars (like the mk2 berlingo is different from the 306's, etc), but they will fit if the charriot is similar!

For example, mk2 berlingo charriot is common to Peugeot 306, Citroen Xsara and Citroen Zx models, so althought the suspension rates where different (and the part numbers), they are interchangeable.. The Mk3 maybe be common to the same category models, but newer, like the Peugeot 307, maybe 308 and Citroen C4 models!

Havent been on this in ages! thanks for your help! knew 306 ones would not! found out from a fellow member that c4 ones fit the front! but when it comes to the rear the shocks are different which means the originals will have to be kept in the back as the springs will fall out of the rear due to the original shock being to long

Hello,

You could send your rear shocks to a company that repair shocks. They will made custom shocks from your original ones. They cut the spigot of yours and short the travel of the shock.

This work is cheap. In Portugal this job can be done for around 60€.
