These Rear Shock Mounts are our Extra Heavy Duty challenge suspension 2 Position top shock mounts. They are designed mainly to fit a DEFENDER that requires a firmer road handling by using the more upright shock position and allows extra room for the fuel pipes on TD5 and Puma engines. However, they can still have the same position as our chall single position shock mount if required.
These shock mounts use our 11-inch travel (challenge) PIN/PIN fixing shock absorber and allows you to mount the shock absorber in 2 different positions. 1st hole is a stiffer ride (more upright) for road handling and 2nd hole for more articulation the same as our challenge rear shock mount. If you do adjust the shock position regularly, I recommend that you drill a hole above the nut and put a split pin or R clip to stop the nut coming off if it becomes loose.
These mounts are designed for our 11 inch travel +5.5 inch (challenge) Pin/Pin fixing shocks, they provide long travel suspension and ride quality for off road applications. By using the Pin on the top mount there is improved movement in all directions. The problem with standard Eye top mount is it can move front to back, but the sideways movement is restricted and causes the Eye to break off when longer shocks are fitted. The rear shock mounts are moved forward and upwards to allow room for the longer shock length, this allows the spring to compress on full upward travel, upward travel is more important than drop out as you want your wheel to move upwards to get over obstacles, but this mount also gives a lot of downward movement as well, keeping your wheels on the ground at all times helps on traction and takes the pressure off the drive train.
On newer rear axles you will have 4 shock bush cup washers on the axle shock mount, you must remove these 4 cup washers as they will restrict the shock movement and can cause the shock lower pin to break off, they are held on with 4 spot welds and must be removed. We supply new cup washers with our shocks to replace them, this is very important.
These mounts are galvanised and come with the required fixings.
