Fitting new Bits4Vits shock bushes

Fitting new Bits4Vits shock bushes

I have been playing around with fitting the shocks upside down to see if it improved clearance. However, now that I am rebuilding the Jimny, it is time to return it to "normal".

With the typical after market shocks, the supplied bushes need cutting down to size, as the first picture shows its not a particularly neat solution.

Dave over at Bits4vits has come up with a shock bush specifically designed to fit for Suzuki Jimnys. As you can see from the picture they are stubby to fit within the small bracket space.

And a side by side comparison shows the overall improvement.

And for those of you wondering about my "upside down" experiment.....

It doesn't work!
