What’s missing here?

Post by simonjrwinter » Sat Apr 04, 2020 2:04 pm

I’m putting together my IRS ready for installation. The lower wishbone inner fulcrum has new-ish bearings so I’m not going to replace them but the tube that runs through the arm is longer than the arm it runs through. I’m presuming there are washers/spacers that go each side? Can anyone confirm please?

Am I right in thinking they are thrust washers?

As I recall, they have a very large washer on each side.

And seals of some sort?

Sorry its been a while since I did it , but I dont think so. Just washers to sandwich it all together.

Not just washers, they're spacers with seals, both sides.

Check out SNG Barratt. I think they are fantastic, been a big help to me. This page is for the XJ6, check for your axle derivative though.

What Stu said.
Go onto SNG Barratts parts catalogue and the blow up pictures will explain all.
I've done it recently on my IRS (with outboard brakes.)
I found that I got the part no's from SNG and then found some of the bits cheaper on ebay. (not a lot though).
The tubes that go through the bearings are longer so that you can locate the washers and sealing rings.

Thank you gents, I’m sorted with what I need now. Just hope SNG Barratts are still open.....
