Update to... Falcon 67 rear suspension rubber bump stop

Post  marcusrm on Thu Apr 21, 2016 1:36 pm

Thanks for the replies guys.

I have made a replacement, and below are links to pictures of the new one and the new one next to the original.
The size is as close as I can reasonably make it. My concern is that it raises the swing arm quite a lot, such that the suspension units will have to be compressed by at least 5cm to get them to fit. So is the block too large?

The bump stop was cut from a 'Draper' rubber sanding block, which as far as I can tell from pressing a fingernail into it is a similar hardness rubber to the original.

I have already machined up new pivot bushes, which are a much closer fit than the originals.

I think that is correct, the shocks do need compressing to fit, but once both are on there you will see the final S/A position.
