Despite the impending repairs to my part-fetching Mazda
pickup, I'm going ahead with my winter project anyway:
rebuilding the front suspension on the TR-4A. This is
my first venture to this area of the car.
As a start, I want to order a complete re-busing kit.
I know I need to rebush both upper and lower A-arms.
After dis-assembly, I'll see what other parts I
I've seen a number of ads for polyurethane bush kits.
I'm inclined to use these instead of stock rubber for
their longer life.
Which kit do listers think is the best deal/most complete?
Moss sells three (upper A-arm, lower A-arm, and shock)
TRF sells a single kit but its Nylatron (what's that)
Haven't checked with British Parts NW on exactly
what their kit contains.
On a related issue, the inner tie rod ends have a lot
of slop (0.10") Moss says they're out of stock and don't
know when they'll have any more. Looking at the pubs,
it appears that these items can be rebuilt by replacing
shims and washers. Anyone done this? Should I try it or
just start hunting for replacement?
