Dan Brown's yer man here Richard I think...I suspect he has lots of experience with both engine and suspension!

I have AVO's on my Dolly, but not impressed by the lower bush. After replacement squeaking within a year. They wear quickly.

Spax have the same issue.
I’m looking at changing to a spherical bearing.

Hi Jeroen, do you have a prduuct number of the bearing? How did you prevent the bearing from sliding across the bolt?

Hallo Henk,

I ordered these at Avo with a bearing end. These are not std Avo's with just a bearing fitted. Fitting a superflex bush will solve your problem.

I tried the uprated bush’s they don’t work either.

Once mine is up and running.
I’ll go for AVOs with the bearing Or GAZ.

Do you have the part numbers for the shocks.
What are the spring lengths and Lbs you went for.


On your AVOs do you have the second lock ring
Difficult to see clearly. ..

When I was racing I found the only solution to this problem was to revert back to rubber bushes on the modified Bilsteins I was using. They were never a problem even with 225lb springs on the rear and 500lb on the front.

The set in the pics I did fabricate for an Italian rallyteam. I just ordered Dolomite ones "but with uniball end" at Avo. Not a particular partnumber. I do not know the spring rates of these springs fitted but iirc these were exactly the same as in the ST data sheets for rallying. Mine still have to be fitted..

There isn't an extra lockring but an allen screw in the springseat.

No, just measure and find the correct one.
