Hydrolastic front crossmember

Post by Andrew1967 »

A friend is looking for a hydrolastic front crossmember, a good used one is fine.

Anyone got anything ?

Cheers

As far as I can tell the only difference between the wet and dry ones are the subframe tower sections and the different pipe brackets. These are available as repair sections from m-machine. Download their catalogue and go to section 230.

That’s an option for sure.

I think a full crossmember might be a better option in this case if possible.

Thanks Ian, I'll let him know. :)

Still think he'd prefer a used or NOS one though.

The holes for the hydro pipe sleeves need to be 1.5 inches diameter. Only mention this in case the Magnum crossmember is considered; can't tell from the picture of it.

Andrew, you may struggle getting the crossmember section from magnum. I ordered a bulkhead and crossmember around 15 weeks ago through m machine and all that has arrived to them upto now was just the bulkhead flat panel. Somerford didnt know they make one.

Not saying it wont arrive but make sure he is prepared to wait :lol:
