Rear shock Linkages

I have posted the same thread on Type r owners

I'm looking at an FN2 and on the MOT it says

nearside rear Shock absorber has a slightly worn linkage (2.7.4)
offside rear Shock absorber has a slightly worn linkage (2.7.4)

the car is lowered on 35mm Eibach springs will this be the problem and how big of a problem is the linkages ?

Thanks

Mat


is it number 4 on this picture

As it's been reported during an MOT, I would agree with you that #4 is the item in question.

Were these 'advisories' or 'failures'?

They were just advisories, do you know if they are hard to change ?

Okay, then they may well actually be fine. It will be interesting to see if they report them next year (although they may look at this years report whilst compiling theirs!).

I would have thought that the damper would be shot before the bush tho, does the rear of your car bang/crash along? If so, then look at replacement dampers - they could we be near the price of a couple of replacement bushes (from Honda).

The bushes are relatively easy to replace, just 1 bolt either side to undo. The tricky bit is going to be drifting out the bush and drifting the new one back in. Oversize sockets a long bolt and washers usually does the trick. Or you could undo the top mount and work on the units in a vice.
