front end rubber
« on: September 07, 2017, 07:08:19 PM »
Hi all

trying to find front end rubber
I'm after coil spring insulators the ones that are in between spring and lower wishbone

wishbone bump stops and the ones that are in between crossmember and chaise locating bracket

 called pedders, no luck, wondering if there is another type that will fit the bedford sett up

the coil springs one i think the Holden one fit.. as for insulators (cross member ones) i have not seen them.. i was lucky to have a good set on mine.. may be a piece of 10-mm neoprene with the holes drilled in it will be OK?? as it's just a shock insulator.

The closest I found for upper bump stop rubbers were Nolathane universal  47173

Lower bump stop rubbers Nolathane universal 47043 with the top modified

Can't get lower coil spring insulator, plastic hose generally works fine.

Crossmember to body rubbers aren't made as far as I am aware, perhaps Rob at Bedford Manor could supply a second hand pair.

Cheers LS120 and Zeeman

Talked to Rob at Bedford Manor and hes got the crossmember ones
Zeeman those nolathane bump stops look pretty cool and I had a look at the commodore donner car, rear coil ones and they fit ok so im thinking of using them

Yes, I believe the ones I used are Holden ones, also sold as universal ones. I was also told VN wagon bump stops would also work? If you need any other bushes, Superpro make all the suspension arm ones, upper and lower.

If you notice in the picture above, I also made an upper coil spring insulator machined from nolathane, I got a bit carried away when rebuilding my front end!

 I thought it was odd that there was no upper one
Also was wondering what what yellow thing was in your pic
Nice work

Zeeman that front end looks the bees knees. Ive just pulled my front end out. Its got cracks in the upper arm and one of the upper arm bolts is seized. Ive got  long way to get it there but thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks Catcher, fair bit of work to get it there. Started out repairing a dodgy weld, ended up stripping the whole thing for drop spindles, new disc brakes, and Transit power steering conversion.

I got a good second hand set of suspension arms from Bedford Manor, as mine had been chromed and were in poor condition.
