[Healeys] BJ8 Shock Problems

The only bad thing about replacing is that you lose the original VIN number stamped into the side of the right side plate.

It might be difficult to spot, but after removing the paint it was visible on my car.

Hi Steve, 


This is an interesting solution.  Just called Tom and looked at the link you sent me, ordered a couple of plates and will try this method.   Looks like it should work, I'll let you know.


Thank you for this idea.

Tom's Import Toys sells handy replacement plates for $99.50 the pair:

These should be stronger than the Moss captive nuts. You open up the end of the shock tower, knock out the captive nuts and slide the plate in.
