Placement Order Of Washers On Rear Damper

Recommended Posts

I made a rookie mistake and did not write down the order the washers and the rubber pieces came off when I removed the rear damper.

I think the order underneath the mount is (from bottom up) washer/rubber piece/ washer

and then above the mount it would be (from bottom up) rubber piece/ washer / washer

Does this sound right?

As always thanks.

Force is strong with LEW :

There is an update to that guide coming soon (as soon as I get my springs :D )

Nearly right - both the rubbers are sandwiched between the captive plates.

Here's a pic using the new Lotus parts, they're essentially the same...


Bottom to top :

Heavy duty flat washer (more likely to be a copy of the top washer though with your car)


Rubber cup washer (note this is the correct way around as the little lip goes inside the hole in the chassis mount)

Rubber cup washer (turned upside down to meet the other one)


Domed washer
