Re:Help please: Leaf spring saddle bushes
Hi all, I'm going through the rear leaf spring mount saga on my 76 Capri2 V6. Ordered a set from local Autopro dealer SPF1979K supposed to fit 69/74 Capri, Mrk1&2 Escort. Compared with originals? nothing like what I need to locate into spring pad on diff and too short in the spigot. Looked up in Parts manual I have and yes, two different PN for top and bottom. 70EB-5536-AA and 70EB-5K617-AA visible on old ones as well.
Rang Superpro HQ at Moorooka qld and they said they sold heaps overseas no problem. I had difficulty getting them to understand the function of the locating spigot that the metal sleeve goes on, sent Nick at R&D a photo and he's asked me to bring in a sample. It seems they have been advised via above posts enough to realise a problem I have a 71 Capri so I stole the mounts out of that, they are identical to the Capri2 ones so at least back in action. I'm hoping I can return/swap the duds as they were $95
