steering rack clamp bushes


Recommended Posts

i need to change the steering rack clamp bushes on my 65 vit 6

the drivers side looks easily accessible but would i have to raise the engine to gain access to the bush on the passenger side it looks like its right up under the engine

Yes,clearance is very tight. Doesn't need to go up a lot, but I think you will need to undo the rad hoses (possibly) and obviously the engine mounts. A trolley jack and block under the front of the sump will do the lift bit easily enough.

Strongly recommend avoiding the new rubber bushes. Poly not much more expensive and seem to last well. Or even ali solid mounts (a bit marmite)
