Title: strut bearing cup part number?
Post by: graham on December 15, 2018, 06:14:13 PM
i did post in another thread similar but thought it best to just start another post. i have the dreaded suspension struts to do, i will be cutting them, i need part numbers for the bearing cups if anyone has them (befor i do the walk of shame into the dealers asking the spotty parts guy for information on a car that is older than he LOL) aaaaaanyway, ive put this off for a week (had the coilovers that long now, im getting old/patient/lazy i think) so really would like to grab some cups befor crimbo and slam my alhambra on her ass over christmas along with a cambelt and a few other service items..

cheers all

Mirez did post that even really crusty ones hes had come undone with an impact wrench and extension bar (think with a knuckle onto it). Just might be easier than trying to cut them off!

I used a penetrating oil. Filled them up and covered with glove. Come undone after a week. Has anyone thought of drilling small drainhole?

that was rather quick! thankyou, would thatt be correct for a 1998?
i will be drilling a small hole in the cup and filling with grease/covering with a latex glove or two.
as for undoing via an impact and a knuckle, dont really fancy it with the windscreen right there. plus ive not heard of impact knuckles befor LOL its just as easy to cut them off believe me :D ive always found a grinder/recipricating saw to be the fastest tool if the parts are already destin for scrap
cheers again
