Alex, the front lower damper bushes are the same as the rears.

DIY Compliance Washers 12 years 3 weeks ago #14812

Hello again, :-)
i was today in the mg rover service here in Thessaloniki , and we have checked the car, the front and rear upper joint balls should be replaced and all the lower shock absorber bushes and at least it is worth installing the compliance washers !
I will order all these parts from Rimmer Bros and i have to finish the cw's.
They have everyrthing except front lower damper bushes. Maybe i have to order they from somewhere else
I would like to ask which Tool have you used to cut out the shape of the cw's from chopping board of Ikea?
and at least.
And Which inner& outer diameter have these washers to tighten the rubber bushes of the shocks?
Thank you in advance for any help :-)


Hi Alex,

I used a technical drawing dividers (like a compass with two needles instead of a pencil and needle).

The measurements for the shocks I took form the actual bush - didnt make a note of that sorry - but easy to pop the bush out and measure it.

Hi Alex, welcome to T Bar. Are you sure that it is the suspension bushes, just heard of a case on a TF wher the rear wheel bearings and hub had worn because the shaft nut had come loose, whole rear wheel was wobbling and making bad noises from the rear brakes, new hub and bearings sorted it.


Yes the noises could be bearing and hub. That is true. I wanted to add also that Some knocking noises can be produced on the rear also from the rear brake pads, which are on th end.
I will change it hub +bearing+pads.

I sometimes get a knock on full lock when braking. Always asumed it was the pads moving.

Yep. Would be interesting to find out what causes different symptoms.

Adam, When you fitted your home made washers did you replace with new rubber bushes first or did the washers just compress the old bushes.

When I did mine, the bushes were OK so I just added the washers and clamped up. There was a definite improvement. :yesnod:

I decided a while ago that £10 was a lot of money for 4 bits of PVC so I MADE some today! I knew I had seen something I could use but couldn't remember what it was until yesterday in IKEA of all places! Those coloured chopping boards made of flexible PVC are perfect and exactly the right thickness too!

Thanks Adam,
I followed your guide and now my mg has a bit 'of sweden inside! :woohoo:

this is 2mm,but it seems to fit good http://www.ikea.com/it/it/catalog/products/50153123/?query=dralla
