Manufacturer :- Gwyn Lewis 4×4
This kit of 8 washers will do 4 shock absorbers.
These are very important for all + 5 inch LONG TRAVEL SHOCK ABSORBERS, the washers are used to centralize the shock in the shock mount, they help stop the pin of the shock absorber wearing the hole in the upper and lower mounts by holding the pin of the shock in the centre of the hole, 2 per shock absorber are required, they are fitted as in the picture and the reverse on the bottom mount, on later rear axles the original cup washers are spot welded in by 4 spot welds, these must be removed as they restrict articulation and will cause the pin of the shock to brake off, once they are removed you can then fit these new ones as they will allow more movement for the shock bush to flex.
All shock absorbers we supply come with these washers already fitted, (shock absorbers bought elsewhere probably don’t have these fitted).
They cup a bush with an O/D of 38mm, will fit in a hole 20mm diameter and the hole in them is 16mm.
