Reviving this thread. Quick question.

I see ECR recommends 6659k34 for the bushings but Charles said 6659k35. I see the 35 is a bit longer. My question is if you use the longer one I think it blocks the grease port. If the factory ones are longer than I will go that route. Just curious before I get some.

Thanks

Not sure, I purchased the ones that ECR posted about. Should have been a bunch of them in the package as well as the old ones.

Barry-

Let us know what you end up with and how it works out... I'm about to get my tire carrier refinished and will want to replace the bushings.

Thanks

Jay

I helped Mark from the board replace his and he used the ones ECR recommended. We used a long bolt with washers to press the bushings in. There was no issue. When I tried to do the same with mine, the bushings went in fine but I noticed that the bushings are deforming slightly when I do it making the bolt hard to get in.

I was going to try the longer bushings that Charles said he used but I feel those look incorrect because then the grease ports are completely blocked.

You can just cut them down if you feel they are too long.

Hope you are joking. They sell 16mm (ecr) recommendation and 20mm (yours). Cutting seems a lot of trouble for a few mm.

It sounded like you had them already. It's not that complicated - buy shorter ones if you think they are too long, or if you have them, just cut them down. I don't think you need some huge gap for the grease though. If you can pump grease in then it will work. I don't think you can go wrong with a bigger gap either though.

However, as with anything rover, if you have any doubt, please go with the ECR recommendation over mine

Did you ever find out what paint this is? I looked at my paint job on the sliders, front bumper and rear quarter protectors and that krylon spray paint (was that rustoleum?) is just not cutting it. I have chips at almost every corner. Feels like the paint is not grabbing on the primer very well... Front bumper was por-15 IIRC and since I did not go to bare metal, rust is coming through (or maybe that was not por-15? Can't remember anymore).

Hey Dave
I was just curious how this worked out once you put it back together? And what hardware did you guys use?
Thanks

I galvanized mine with the bushing still in it. Drilled and tapped everything (the big die for the main studs was expensive) and refitting original bolts with lots of anti sieze and grease. I got the new rubber bump stops through the dealer.

Those bolts are crazy expensive!
Anyone modify the brackets and use regular old bolts?

I have a set of the replacement ones you can have. It's weird, the bolts fit in the bushings fine but when I pressed the bushings into the carrier the bolts wouldn't fit anymore. I tried a few times. Wasted a bunch of bushings.

Sounds good, but I wonder if I'd have the same problem?
Did you get the original LR ones or the macmaster Carr ones?

I reamed out the bushings with a drill after I galvanized the whole thing.

I ended up using genuine. The McMaster Carr ones I had an issue with.

Any thoughts on using plastic bushings in place of the brass?
