Rover 10 Shock Absorbers

Post by Stuart7 » Mon Sep 30, 2019 8:37 pm

Hi All,
So after many years of the shock absorbers doing precisely nothing I have decided to have a look at them. Have started with the front which came off ok which is a good start. As you can see in the photos I have found a period advert which shows they are a Smith Single Acting Shock Absorber. There is also a photo of my unit that I have removed.
So has anybody overhauled there units or had them overhauled by somebody else? The shock absorbers themselves are not functioning and the bushes on the end of the arms are also very worn so will need replacing too.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Stuart.
