Mk1 Rear shock mounts

Post by UNknOwnTurbo on Wed Jun 15, 2016 8:06 pm

Hey guys. I'm on my 3rd left rear shock mount in 6 months. Any ideas on preventing them blowing out? Are there any tips for installing them I don't know about, I just bolt both sides and then tighten down the big nut over the washer.

Any advice appreciated.

They are all shite, get some polyeurathane E30 BMW mounts off eBay. Had them ages, really easy to fit and top kit. Remove the studs with Allen key, drill out the holes and it over the captive studs. Almost zero suspension twist is allowed.
