I don't think they're substantially longer than 110 ones to be honest.

Simplest solution would be to make an adaptor or the pin. A piece of 40 or 50mm bar drilled and tapped appropriately so it will screw on and contact the base of the shock absorber with an eye welded on the end of it.
Or if you're really talented with your machine tools (mill and a lathe for the job) you could make them out of a solid square bar.

Could probably be CNC'd pretty quick and easy if you had the drawings.

Apparently even Google Sketchup will generate CNC code nowadays.

Hi guys, I've been looking at this myself as I bought an Ambi in need of new rear shocks and this is killing me.

As much as it pains me shitpart supergaz DC5002 dimensions open and closed are almost identical for RRC, Disco 1, however I can't find if they have eyes at both ends?

Also unable to check resistance? Any thoughts?

Regards

John

RRC rears have eyes both ends, if that's the rear number you're quoting.

Hi John, have you replaced any shocks on your 101?

Happy new year all.

On google books I found ...The shock absorber handbook, which seems to have some interesting testing material in it.

Yes, but don't get too excited - it's coily and has twin shox all round, so no real help in terms of original vehicles' needs! 8)

I don't think that's a parallel hole in the eye that accommodates the bush. From memory the bush is split into two comes pushed in from each side. So the external diameter of the bush halves are larger at the edge than in the centre. So you would have two dimensions for the external dia. of the bush. Based on what you've asked for; Do you think that Monroe are aware of our bush shape or are they searching through parallel sided bush versions?

Bush size is of little interest really I'm sure Bush manufacturers can make a Bush to suit the shock and the mounting rather than relying on religiously keeping to original shock Bush. Try defender or disco Bush sizes or series

Reviving an old thread

It looks like disco 2 rear shocks suit front on 101. Disco 1 rear suit rear on 101.

my 140 fc has coil springs instead of leaf in the rear and with double coil like defender 130...i have tried many option with shocks and finally i have find it adequate using double shock ,one the standar 101 and the other from disco 300 tdi.
on the front axle I have 3 leafs intead of 2 only with the 101 original shocks...I am thinking to add double shock as well ...I found the car much more stable with 3 leafs ,is taller but still you feel the front axle a little tough compare to the rear one if you go slow mainly when driving over asphatt bumpers at street city roads ,,but once in a off road track the faster the better.( no storage boxes ,neither a drawers get open depite the very bad locks).I did not measured the disco absorvers but they have perfectely matched with the other pair of 101 rear shocks without any problem..
What I can certainly say, it is that in the rear axlewhen you use double shock both ,l from 101 then it is to tough and you do not have nearly compression...
therefore I think disco shocks are good options but they are definitively softer than those in the 101 ....probably 2 disco absorver in the rear axle and in the front axle would work .
NOw I can not do it but later on I will try double shocks in the fron axle with 3 parabolic leafs...one thing I experience with the 3 leafs was that despite I had a double cardan in the front prop shaft ,without rumbling or vibrations, with three leafs they started so I have to descend the transfer to decrease the angle betwee the transfer and propshaft...
unfortunately my double cardan has broken ....after 10000 kms but it has no central greasing ..so I am going to do one using one coming from a nissan patrol top line which has a central valve to grease perfectly the double articulation.

reviving a rather old thread...

Has anyone actually fitted the TF119 rear disco shocks?

I ordered a pair but it won't be a simple swap.
The TF shocks come with bushes fitted but the inner diameter is way too small.
The original shocks are suspended with conical rubbers, any chance that using them will work out allrieght?
Or drill the TF bushes to a suitable diameter? There won't be much metal left on the inside though.

Any ideas?
What will be the best way to go?

Greetings,
Bob
