OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Urethane Spring Plate Grommet, SOFT, 1 7/8" ID ROUND (Large OD for IRS), PAIR
Urethane Spring Plate Grommet, SOFT, 1 7/8" ID Round, Pair


 
Urethane Spring Plate Grommet, SOFT, 1 7/8" ID, Large OD (IRS) ROUND, Pair

Urethane is perfect for this application! It wears better than metal, yet does not distort, crunch, or bottom out like the soft stock rubber ones do! We strongly recommend trial fitting these to your spring plates PRIOR TO INSTALLATION. Minor radiusing/fitting is recommended.

Putting the grommet on the spring plate, make sure it fits FLAT. If it doesn't, the radius is inadequate and it's hitting the weld bead, and it will bind, grab, and squeak like crazy! The guys that complain about Urethane Grommets squeaking did not do this work during the installation!

You can grind the interfering weld on the Spring Plate, or do a little more radiusing of the Grommet (Lathe, or Dremel) until it clears. YOU MUST CHECK ALL 4 BUSHINGS!

When they fit flush you are ready to install your parts back onto the car by cleaning all the parts, then lubing them up with Teflon Grease, and assemble!

This product includes 2 of the 4 bushings needed to do this job, you DO need the other 2 to finish the job!

Overview
 
Urethane Spring Plate Grommet, SOFT, 1 7/8" ID, Large OD (IRS) ROUND, Pair

Urethane is perfect for this application! It wears better than metal, yet does not distort like soft stock rubber ones do! We do strongly recommend trial fitting these to your spring plates PRIOR TO INSTALLATION. Minor radiusing/fitting is recommended.

APPLICATIONS:

These are softer than regular urethane, and stiffer than stock rubber, for a nice compromise.
