Favor needed attn anyone with wk stock rear shocks in hand
 
I need a favor from someone who has a set of stock rear wk shocks in hand or near by.

I am putting new shocks in to my WK but i need to change the bushings on them so i need to order new bushings. BUT i need to re use the metal sleeves from my current stock shocks in the new bushings.

So what i need is 2 measurements. I need measurement of the out side diameter of the metal sleeve that is pressed in to the rubber shock eye bushing. I need this measurement for both ends of the shock.

The measurement should be one of the following per end.

5/8", 3/4", 11/16th"

Thanks again. I could just pull a stock shock from my WK but i have not had time and i know some people have these hanging around.

It is a bit hard to measure Kyle as the metal sleeve is a tight fit in the rubber bush but it looks like 15/16th" (24mm) to me. My Jeep is a WH. Shock is marked Tokico U.S.A. 55553E. I hope this is of some help.

Hmm that sounds a little large to me. I guess i will just need to pull a shock this week and measure it to verify before i order the new bushings. I need to know the OD of the metal sleeve so i know what ID to get for the new bushings from energy suspension.

Thanks any way though.

I just measured mine and got the same thing 15/16" both ends and i have the same year as your jeep not that it makes a big difference.
