just recently replaced the bushes on the front radius arms and noticed one of the bolt holes in the axle bracket had ovalised slightly.
didnt think too much about it and just did the bolts up nice and tight.
but on speed bumps there is a squeak and sure enough when you look under the motor and pry that particular bush, you can see the bolt move in the hole slightly.
i;ve heard of people welding a thick tight fitting washer to the bracket to solve this problem, but I have no idea what size washer is needed for such a big bolt! Does anyone know what size i need to be ordering?
Another bloody dent...

If it's not leaking then it's run out..
M16 washer, prob best being either c or e form- as these are slightly wider.
stick under bolt head or nut then weld washer to axle bracket. with the weight of motor on the bolt it should be in the right position.
If your struggling to find c/e form washers give us a shout and i'll get some over to you.
Another crappy day in paradise
