Rear shocks

Post  john87 on Mon May 16, 2016 9:49 pm

Hi all,

Where is the best place to get replacement rear shocks for my 1958 falcon 81

Anyone have any the did not like, or any thet thought were great??

Another thing, i have seen replacement "girling type bonded bushes" for sale. This is all very well, but how you supposed to bond them in??? Presumably the originals were vulcanised into place..

bushes

The bushes consist of an outer steel sleeve, and an inner steel sleeve, between these sleeves is rubber, it is this that is bonded to the inner and outer sleeves, the outer steel sleeve is a press fit into the shock absorber eye.

On my Falcon 81 I could only find the single bonded bushes without the outer sleeve. They have been happily doing the job without moving for more than a 1000 miles. The outer part of the bush that is outside the ring of the damper expands slightly so that it provides some lateral location. This pic isn't very clear but if you zoom in you can get the idea from it.
