Shaun was asking me how to disassemble one of these....

Image

Image

Some information is here but it looks like I didn't actually provide an explanation on how to do it.

This is what yours may look like when it comes off the car!

Image

Shauns right, it isn't entirely obvious how it comes apart.

The big spring that connects to the rear axle should just pull out, get that out of the way and make some space!

Click on the photo below...

In one end of the pivot is a grub screw (1), this secures in a pin (2) that in turn holds the pivot in (3). Remove the grub screw and the pin in the picture below and the pivot should be able to driven out, this may be a bit stiff due to rust/dirt etc...

Image

You can then remove the rubber boot and undo the nut holding the cylinder to the bracket.

Image

Image

Use a club refurb kit and reassemble as per the picture below

Image

The hyundai H100 van uses the same part, here's the hyundai parts diagram, the part number is 59411

Hope this helps!

The shell's now completely stripped and has been dropped off at the Painters, the same place incidentally that blasted and painted my race Sprint, so it's in good hands.....

Image

Image

All other components have been either powder coated or plated and will be ready to be bolted on when it comes back.

Excellent stuff, can't wait to see how it comes out.

Mine should be going for paint in the next couple of months.

First shots of it out of the Blaster's....bit of remedial work required!

Image

Image

Image

Image

In other news, lots of stuff has been stripped and powder coated: all the suspension components...well, everything actually!

Image

Just started stripping the axle back.....measured the backlash and it is well within range and it's had regular oil changes and looks good....

Image

Image

...been Jenolited and red lead to follow...
