    Hello to all. im newish to the forum and could do with some advice. I decided to change my rear springs (lwb Colorado) 21 yrs overdue I think.. the inner rubber dampers were totally shot and the steel ring where the spring sits in the top also rusted to bits. is it possible to buy the damper as a complete piece or is possible to fit the new springs without the inner damper.. hope this makes sense ... any advice.. many thanks..Higgy

    Hi Shayne. thanks for the reply. the top and bottom where the spring sits is fine its the steel rim that's attached to the rubber bump stop that sits at the top of the spring is shot (my mistake not damper)...thanks for the info at least I know I can get hold of some.. would you recommend milners or roughtrax for springs? im just after a standard pair HD.. Many thanks

    I get all my stuff from Roughtrax , my bumpstops have no steel ring on top , i can only guess your talking about a metal spacer kind of thing ?

    Unless you do extreme off road or carry silly weight in your truck the bumpstops serve no purpose at all really .

    Welcome aboard Higgy. IMO as a Collie owner I'd say for ride quality you can't beat OEM springs and dampers.
    Others may say different but on a predominantly road queen Mr T knows best.

    The ones I took off had a steel rim with a lip that sat on the top of the spring before you fitted it in place it all seemed to be part of the rubber stop. maybe il do away with them and just fit some decent springs.. cant find any at milner or roughtrax are they dealer only part.. thanks anyway Shane
