    Correct diameter bushings front suspension?

    Need your help with the assembly of the SWB front suspension.
    The diameter of the bushings that go into the cross member is 54 mm.
    However the diameter of the cross member is 49 mm.
    Obviously, 5 mm difference is far too much.
    What is the correct diameter of these bushings?
    Thank you.

    regards,
    Robert

    Robert,

    When the Fan Block wears out the rubber normally takes a 'set' and as the bush isn't bonded together the outer steel sleeve normally stays in the steering crossmember whilst the rubber just pull out.

    You will need to remove this part before you can fit the new component.

    Indeed, both outer steel sleeves were still in the cross member. Thank you Chris.
