Shock bushes

Post by Chipale » Mon Jul 08, 2019 10:56 am

I need to replace the bushes on my rear shock absorbers and I have decided to also replace fronts at same time. Having read about poly bushes I have decided to get these fitted but I want to triple check I am ordering the correct parts (pretty sure I am having checked but belt and braces here!).Here is link to Polybush site:
https://www.polybush.co.uk/shop/jaguar/ ... r=2%7C1968

Am I correct is saying its part 31J - C3053 (of which I need 4 bushes for thefront shocks) and 31D - C10996 (of which I need 8 bushes for the rear shocks). Car is 1968 V8 250.

Thanks, Fergus

Hello Fergus,

Yes that is correct.

To keep the smoothness of the Daimler ensure you order the Comfort Bushes, nothing harder than that.

I have used Polybush on numerous applications on my Daimler and also with other classics - certainly worth the extra pennies IMHO.

Worth reading the Polybush advice on fitting !!!!!!!!
