Can anyone tell me the ID, OD, and thickness of the washers used in the rear shock assembly?

The PO of our car swapped out and removed a bunch of stuff. I have a stash of various large washers I can pick through, but can't find specs to know what's correct. They all appear to be NLA, so hard to even find pictures. Are any of these unique in that they're concave or slotted?
  • #4 914-333-503-00 Cap - boge -
  • #5 901-333-511-00 Stop washer
  • #9 914-333-515-01 Washer (aka suspension shim?)
  • #13 914-333-515-00 Washer

Thank you.

P.S. Is it safe to reuse the rubber bump stop (6), donut (11), and cone (12) bushings fi they're not thrashed?

Post WTB - plenty of proper parts out there. They are not standard washers.

New jounce bumpers will be much more pleasant to ride than age hardened parts.

Same for the rubber isolators (11 & 12) - new parts are available, why ride on 50 year old hardened parts?

Fair point on the rubber.

Regarding the washers, I have a lot of standard as well as non-standard. Whether digging through my stash or buying from someone else, I am not sure what I am looking for.

Thank you.

Made some progress, but still wrestling with a few. Is the stepped washer far left of the photo #4 from the parts catalog (914-333-503-00 Cap - boge -)?

Not entirely sure what I'm looking for to get these two:
  • #5 901-333-511-00 Stop washer
  • #9 914-333-515-01 Washer (aka suspension shim?)

The need for some of those parts depends on your choice of shock make and model.

I think some Koni use a different thread pitch on some early shocks. I remember trying to find a match for one. But i thonk the washers ate all the same.

^^^ Agreed, this extra hadware I have from a Koni setup differs from my Bilstein setup.

If any of this can be of interest if Bruce doesn't have you covered, let me know. smile.gif

You are missing #13 washers.
It is going to be a couple weeks til i have the parts plated and ready. I only have two complete sets and want two keep one. It seems @dennisv may have some of the parts.
I think the only parts that may be different are the long nuts that go thru the rubber grometts at the top.
I think it was only the early Koni that were a different pitch. I remember trying to chase one down to have enough parts to build a set of shocks.

Thanks for the photos and replies.

I thought I had #13 and was missing #5 and #9.

FWIW - I took off old Koni's and am planning to install original setup Boge.

Yes i was repling to Montreal 914 regarding #13 missing.
Do you have the lower shock perches for the Boge? They are unique to Boge.

It looks like you have #13
DennisV
I've posted the details I've accumulated to the Parts Vault.

@Montreal914 and @bdstone914 Thanks for the photos. They are helpful. If you have access to #5 and #9 the ID and OD dimensions would be great.
Montreal914
@DennisV : I will gladly measure them tonight but it would help if someone could identify #5 for me in my picture.

As for #9, I would think they are the larger ones located in between the rubber ones in my picture.

@DennisV

Here is what I measure for #9 (the ones showing in between the rubber stopper in my picture (a few post above).

@Montreal914 Thanks very much for this. Added info to parts vault.

I just got some information from Auto Atlanta today. They indicate #5 is in fact rubber and the OD is about 54mm.
Montreal914
This is the only part that is non-metal in my Koni red leftover part setup. Seems like a compliant plastic.

Not sure it is #5 but here you go.
