I THINK those shocks on the front were OE BOGE,  I wonder if the rubber
cracked or let go

and that loosed the bolt,  you'd probably have heard that long before it
came out though,

i MAY have an OEM BOGE that I can send you, Jim is right... they are VERY
hard to press in and out

and if the rubber is not in good shape it wont survive that.  Hate to lose
the BOGE's...  there must be

something that can be replaced in there.  Ill be at the T3 shed later this
week, Ill see what shocks

and parts I have.

Hi all,

So last night while driving the upper mounting bolt for my right front shock
decided to depart the vehicle and go off on its own on the mean streets of


Unfortunately it also took the washers and bushing with it.  I can find
sources online for the bolt and washers but I can't seem to get the bushing
without buying a new shock.


If anyone has one they wouldn't mind parting with, that would be a huge
help.  According to the parts book it's 111 413 371A.  


Dan, who is local to me, has graciously offered to check his storage space
tomorrow because he's pretty sure he has a spare set of shocks in there.
But in the event he isn't able to locate them, I figured I'd post here in
case someone else has a spare.
