Mk 4 Rear Suspension
« on: 07 Sep 2008 at 17:33 »
I am currently trying to rebuild a Mk4 and the rear suspension bushes are shot and I remember or dreamt that the bushes from I believe a Mini can be used as a substitute. Can somebody please confirm and advise me what the parts are
Many thanks
John Millis

Hi John,
             If you are referring to the balls in the vertical link, some members have replaced them with bonded rubber bushes - I think they used the top bush from the engine stabilizer on a 3.8 Jaguar XK engine. Of course, you will have to get the links annealed before trying to machine them to accept the bushes.
                                       Regards,
                                                  Eddie.
