  1. I had the rear suspension ready to go in today, but forgot about bump stops...damn. Do you know exactly which Koni bump stops to get and a good source to purchase?
  2. Are bump stops needed in the rear? I also have the Eibach springs but with the new Koni struts.
  3. Ok, many people have done it by removing the outer sleeve. Are you playing devil's advocate here, or have you actually done this job and installed the urethane bushings with the sleeve in? I doubt it is possible from what I am seeing and reading. I want to hear from someone who has done it. I cut the outer sleeves out today based on what my eyes were telling me and reading several post from people who have dealt with this issue previously. I can't find one post from someone who has done this with the outer sleeves in. If this is the case, it is very frustrating not to be able to rely on the info from the seller and manufacturer. After all these years they haven't bothered to verify and update the instructions!
  4. I think you're trying to tell me to cut that sleeve out. Honestly, I really don't see that bushing going in with that sleeve.
  5. The edge of the bushing is not tapered. I have no idea how I will get it started other than grease and a vice. Yes, the pin does fit through the inner sleeve of the bushing with it out. It damn well better. It's hard to believe this is so mysterious.
  6. I called Prothane and got tech support. They insist the outer sleeve stays in. Oh well...I will attempt it I guess. This conflicting info is a real bummer. I wonder why MSA is saying this? They have used Prothane exclusively.

  8. I spoke with Greg at Motorsport Auto today. They have been using the same vendor for these bushings for many years. Prothane I believe. He assured me that the inner sleeve is to remain in and they will PRESS in even though the bushing looks big. I will give it a try. Stay tuned.

  10. Yep, the quote in my original post is from the MSA page above. My point is that they look WAY oversized if that sleeve is to be retained. I'm doubting the accuracy of this statement.
  11. Here a some pics. It looks like it's off by the width of the outer sleeve.
  12. Thread resurrection. I have the black urethane spindle pin bushing from MSA. The notes on their website say, "The outer metal sleeve of the factory rubber spindle pin bushing is retained for use with this kit. Urethane Spindle Pin Bushings are oversized and will require a press or vice to install. Please call with any questions prior to removing your stock spindle pin bushings." Looking at the size of the bushing compared to the control arm with the outer sleeve in, the bushing seems way too big to even press in. Can someone please confirm how to proceed?
  13. The material behind my dog leg part of the rocker is rusted badly. Is there anything readily available, or is it time to fabricate?
  14. Is this how the original panels were pieced together?
