Guys,

Currently rebuilding the front suspension of my 69 GTV. I purchased replacement lower wishbone bushes (originals absolutely stuffed) and received the Lemforder ones in the picture below. These are different from the standard bushes. Can someone enlighten me on installation. Does the rubber spacer go on the inside or outside of the bush? Do I still use the standard washers including the cup washer?:confused:



Awaiting education.
Cheers Wazza

GTV Mk1

quick screen shot borrowed from another forum that shows the orientation of the bushing, the soft washer goes on the inside of the arm to keep dust/dirt out. Yes you need to reuse the washers that came off...

Regards,

Hi Surfcity,

Thanks heaps. I had deduced the same, but it's good to have it confirmed.

BTW, that suspension is absolutely spotless, obviously hasn't seen the road yet. I hadn't thought of painting the suspension arms silver - it makes them look like aluminium. Mine are boring subframe black.

Cheers,
Wazza.
