Full rubber replacement

PostPost by: street » Wed Jun 29, 2022 1:08 am

I am about to start on chassis replacement, does anyone have a pre-prepared list of all suspension rubbers that I should replace whilst everything is apart. I was thinking of going to SJS.

Thanks

You might have to assemble your own list using the workshop manual, or the online parts manuals from rdent.com. Alternatively, you could send an email to SJS and ask them if they have such a list. Their web site is pretty clunky and slow to use, but perhaps Steve can just give you a list of what you'll need.

Otherwise, just figure on all of your suspension bushings, ARB bushings, differential torque arm bushings, Lotocones if you are still using them, differential mounts, transmission mount, engine mounts, and anything else that looks like it needs replacing (good time to replace steering rack gaiters). Perfect time to do a good job!

Cheers,
