Morning everyone, I'm after some help / guidance please.
I have a Mk1 with worm rear suspension bushes so ordered polybush replacements which came with leaf spring suspension pads.
Looking at the old rubber pads which have come off the top of the spring, there is a circular rubber ring which feeds through a metal 'U' shaped channel running front to back and then there is a metal ring on top of the pad which locates it into the bracket on the axle however, on the replacements ones, the circular ring isn't long enough to feed through the U channel and into the bracket on the axle. I've been searching around and have seen numerous photos, some with no rubber / polybush pads on them at all i.e. just spring connecting straight to axle, some with just the bush pad but no 'U' channel and some which appear to have both the pad and the channel.
For those where there are pads and metal channels, I'm not sure how they would locate the pad in the right place if the circular ring isn't sticking out of the top..
I've tried to describe this as best I can but the more I look, the more confused I'm getting.
Any help / guidance is much appreciated.
