Calibra rear shock absorber upper mounts in polyurethane
« on: July 27, 2017, 12:48:48 PM »
hi, i'm replacing the rear shocks on my 94 calibra, i purchased bilstein shocks but they don't come with the upper mounts, grrr... Question is, are there any urethane mounts that are used for the rear shocks?  thanks for your help

I'm in Australia, and the best decision I made was to rely on Autovaux for parts. They know their stuff and you won't get mucked around... if they don't have it they'll try to get it in. Shipping is very reasonable if you combine orders.

On rear shock mounts I personally wouldn't use poly. Just my 2c

auto vaux, parts cost $57 gbp plus $67 gbp freight, near $150 for parts, the local nolathane shop says he can probaly match them for $50 if i bring one in, hmm... i guess pull them out of the spare car and off to the nolathane shop.

ill let you know what i find.

Just to let you know Autovaux charge me about A$100 for a box weighing 25kg that is delivered to my door, so 67 dollars (or pounds) is over the top for 4 rubbers and 2 insert sleeves.  At a guess, I'm wondering if you haven't been quoted (parts @ A$57), or A$67 for parts including freight. Just a guess...

well, i retried autovaux, if i ordered just two of the bushes, its 18GBP to air freight, anything more its 47GBP to UPS.
i have aquired the bushes i need from http://stores.ebay.com.au/abs24shop/ in Latvia, $50aud delivered for the bushes i require.

id still like to go polyurethane and will check out the poly shop when the new bushes arrive, i can't get to the spare car at the moment

ill let you know

cheers

Well without knowing all the details it's difficult, but there's definitely a problem somewhere...

It simply can't be more cost effective to split an order and pay the delivery charge twice (2 x 18GBP) than the 47GBP quoted

Anyway, best wishes.

europerformance.co.uk list polyurethane suspension bushes for the Calibra. Might be worth giving them a call.

FYI my quote from Autovaux for upper, lower rubber rear shock mounts, including sleeves is GBP£20.86. Does not include any delivery charge.
