Polybushes transmitting axle noise!?

I see that you are comparing polly to rubber. If the old metalastic bushes are still available could someone please point me in the right direction. Cheers Dave

AVO rear shock fitting

But if I was to fit a spacer to move the bottom of the shocker away from the axle bracket my thinking is that it wouldn't line up properly to the top mount on the chassis?

AVO rear shock fitting

Hi everyone, just received my Christmas present....2 new rear AVO shocks from GW. When ordering them I asked the question about the bottom eye having and offset like the Spaxs that were fitted.

Upper wishbone bushes

The car had poly bushes before I started to strip it down. After cleaning up the upper mounts I tried on the wishbones with the old poly bushes still in and they felt tight and firm. But I decided to go back to rubber. When fitting the rubber bushes on the fulcrum spindles they are tight, but when i...

Upper wishbone bushes

Hi everyone, just fitted some new upper wishbone bushes (rubber from GW) but I'm concerned about the amount of movement that the individual wishbones have. When I bolt the top ball joint between them the movement becomes less apparent. Could anyone let me know if this is OK. Cheers Dave.

Trunnion Repair Kit

That's just what I was thinking. So if I trim the brim of the top hat and get it like Roger's photo I think I'll be ok. Thanks for all the help guys.

Hi everyone, I know people must get fed-up with trunnion questions, but I just want to get it right. Whilst doing a mock build of thr Graham Walker trunnion repair kit I am finding it hard to get the top hat bush to sit flat to the cupped washer when the "O" ring is in place. Or is it me and should ...

The near side has a captive nut welded underneath but the offside just has a hole and had a large diameter repair washer between the nut and the plate.

lower wishbone help

Also I have a set from what I presume is a later model as they have grease nipples at the trunnion side and wo...
