    Shock absorber rubber bush

    My car went in for its MOT today and failed on an excessively worn rubber bush on the offside rear shock absorber.
    Where the heck do you get these from apart from the stealers and can you get uprated ones?

    I had to replace the shocks mate, I'm not sure that you can even get the bush seperately, at least thats what Audi told me....

    Mine was pretty bad, in fact the shock had come away from the bush itself. Twas FUBAR.

    they are easy to fit. you will get them at any motor factor. Remove shock and you will see where it has to go. If your car is lower you will need to check the sizes against each as i have my car lowered and put new ones in and the car looked like hot rod. Had to cut them a bit to give lowering as it looks.

    It's apparently the bottom mount on the shock.

    That one which is pressed into the bottom of the actual shock absorber? If so I tried EVERYWHERE trying to get that, and couldn't find one anywhere!
