Hi all

I have a question I hope someone can help with.

I was cleaning the rear brake and looked at the shock and the bottom of the shock had moved sideways towards the bevel drive.

I took shock off and put in a vice to centre the bush.

It is a hagon shock.

Has anyone else had this problem? The bush looks fine. Seems very odd. Does it mean shock has had it?

Is there anything I can do to stop it happening again.

Any help would be great. Cool Laughing

Thanks

Contact Hagon and see what they recommend. They might offer to repair it for a small cost.
It needs to be safe. Very Happy

Hi 

Yes I will contact them after bank holiday and see what they say.

If you're talking about the rubber bush then everything's fine. What you need to do is to fit a penny washer either side of the bush to stop it from migrating sideways: it was over the top of the nut, wasn't it?
