What are peoples views on Procomp ES3000 shock absorbers as I will probably need to change shockers for the new springs and quite fancied these?

Also does anyone have any hints or tip/tricks to getting old bushes out?

Small blowtorch and a hacksaw, burn the rubber out, the inner sleeve will come with it. Thread the hacksaw blade through remaining bush and fit it back onto the hacksaw frame upside down, gently cut through. try not to cut too far!
If its still stuck cut it again 180 degrees from the first cut, it'll fall out in 2 parts


I hated the job so much I sold my series 111 and bought a coiler!

Good luck! lol!

With everyones helpful hints and tips I now have 2 options

1. Drill saw and hammer out old bushes, not really fancying this option.

2. After looking round the internet I have made . . . . a bush puller!! (Photo to follow) Thats right I made it. and with any luck it should work. If not see option 1.

As promised not quite finished as I have to drill a hole in the plate at the top but this should have the bushes removed in no time!

Be prepared to replace them in a years time. I had 6 fitted to my 90, twins on front, and the are all leaking. I hear the same story from others Exclamation
My new built is getting Terra Firma shocks all round. They are much stronger and have been proven on major events like Paris - Dakar. Bit more money, but if the last 5 time longer ................. bounce

I'm sure there is a pip pin conversion somewhere. Dont get me wrong on ProComp, good shocker, but the leaking thing is a pain - but then again, I guess old age does'nt come alone Embarassed

Good new is the bush puller works a treat it makes short work of the bushes, bad news because I am a cheap skate I didn't get decent threaded bar and after one and a half bush I have started to strip threads on the bar so have stopped as I don't fancy having a bush puller stuck in one of my springs

Hi the trouble with most threaded bar & coach bolts is it is 4.5 whilst most bolts are 8.8 strenth then you get high tensile at 10.0 lol!
