Hi all.  I decided not to put the front shocks in before I put the front end in. So front end in and go to put the shocks through the LCA and guess what, they don't fit.  Rang Pedders who advised, yeah been like that for many years.  Marginally larger diameter and just need to file down virtually a coat of paint.  Well, I've done one side and needs a bit more than a coat of paint filed off and, being freshly painted LCA now needs a touch-up before the shock goes in.  Hope this saves someone some grief in the future.  Cheers Ron

Yeah I think I got the die grinder out. Just a smidge needs to be taken off.

Thanks for sharing Ron. I might have ended up in the same boat. I'm putting a UC front end into my LX. The new shocks are Koni. I know the UC has a larger shocker hole. I better test my assumption that the Koni's will slide in and out!

 

Cheers, Steve.

No worries Steve. Nice to think I can help someone. A bit different from seeking advice all the time.  Good luck with it.  Cheers Ron
