Progressive Suspension 416 Serie Problem

Post by sonntagberg » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:29 pm



Since I do not speak English, I have to translate with Google!
(Please forgive mistakes in pronunciation.)


Unfortunately have a small problem with the assembly with this shock absorber (Link).

Who has already built these in and can help me.

On the right side Everything fits exactly.

On the LEFT side the bolt does not fit in an aperture from the muffler.
The old damper has ca.16mm where the bolt fits perfectly.
The new one has here only 14mm thereby the screwing is not possible.
(Note: The new ones are both equal!)

The question is:
Is there a suitable bolt for the left side
or
should I turn off the Old Bolt to 14mm that fits?
or
can the sleeve be exchanged?

Did the problem already have who and how was it solved?

Rear left view:



(Even if it looks like the middle sleeve consists of 2 parts, that's not the case.
It can not be removed here that the diameter becomes larger)

Original screw connection 14 / 16mm

Problem solved;


I got the tip that is on the bolt a sleeve that can be removed.
Have the sleeve cut open and removed.

Your problem is that the sleeve is not part of the bolt. It should not be there. It is actually part of the shock, and it came out with the bolt when you removed it. If you look at a new bolt, you can see the sleeve is not there:





So yes, removing the "sleeve" (actually a bushing from the shock mount) was the correct solution.
