147 Rear Strut Top Bushing

Hi, just a quick quessie as I'm not really schooled in Alfa rear struts.

Does the conical bushing in the attached image look "normal" or is it showing wear/age? Struts required a little force (pulling and wiggling) to release the bushing's upper lip once the top plate was off.

Overall I love the rear's simplicity!

Thanks, Adam.

Hi

It looks ok no bad wear just a little grubby . where its grubby that shows that its not worn so much to be pushed further in and grinding metal on metal so your good to go. and later on if it does start knocking as you said you love it's simplicity so an easy change

Ta; the gaiters are history, as are bump stops (disintegrating from old age). Good to know the bushings are alright though. 50-odd saved is a win.
