Plus 2 Rear Aluminium Suspension Spacers

PostPost by: david.g.chapman » Mon Sep 23, 2019 6:21 pm

I do not have these fitted on my +2, and the car occasionally grounds the exhaust on our wavy Essex roads.

Fitting these spacers might help me, but it seems that PM and SM don't sell them. Does anyone have an unwanted pair I can buy?

I can only speak for myself, but what are 'these spacers' and where would they fit?

Correctly fitted standard exhaust system should cope with UK roads

They are aluminium spacers about 20mm thick that fit on top of the rear suspension struts. They are designed to limit suspension travel under peak load conditions, such as going over a road bump or dip that resonates with the rear springs.

I have a supplier who PMed me, so I am now OK.

Thanks to all who had a look at this.
