Ah, makes sense.


Now I just need to buy a set of OME to use till I wear them out so I can pull them off to use the mounting sleeve on these shocks! LOL!

The upper bushings are larger than OEM Rover bushings.

Yeah, that's the problem. I didn't realize that when I bought the shocks....

Stock bushing = 47.3mm outside, 13mm inside diameter
Monroe bushing = 45mm outside, 26mm inside diameter

In other words, I either need a collar with 13mm interior diameter, and a 13mm wall! (That's a lot of metal.) Or bushings with 45mm diameter, and a 13mm hole.

If anyone else is trying to fit these, I'd like to hear what your solution is. Cut my losses? Send them back? Find an artisan bushing craftsman?

I'm away from my 110 right now but I can measure my OME for you. If the stars align, it will be next week. I know that you can get a complete Bushing kit from ARB for about $25. My local dealer was willing to order it for me but I only needed two washers so I went a different direction. I would guess that since Monroe makes OME shocks, it's the same size. But probably best to check before ordering a special part.

It would be interesting to see if they are the same size. I thought that's what you were referring to above. Thanks.

Anyone know of a place to buy various sizes so I could just select the one I need?

Sorry for the delay, just found my calipers. My OME shocks mount to the stock Defender rear shock brackets. IIRC that is an M12 nut, but I think the shaft is slightly larger. The ring on the shock is about 40.3mm in diameter and 30mm deep.

You mean the ring on the OME shock? That would mean OME bushings won't work...

The ring on the Monroe is about 45mm

You're correct about the stud, it is an M12 and the shaft seems to be 13mm, this leaves 13mm of gap between the stud and the inside of the shock's bushing. I would need a sleeve of about 7mm thick to go over that 13mm stud.

6.5 mm wall.
