  • Rear Damper upper mount

    The upper mount for the rear shock is very tight. There is only about a quarter inch from the head of the bolt to the skin. So how are you supposed to get this bolt out? I am thinking of cutting a hole in the skin over the bolt, and then putting a cover over it later. Any thoughts?

    BTW, the ID of the metal sleeves in the AVO shock ends is slightly smaller than the bilsteins, so I drilled them out with a 1/2 inch drill to accept the inner sleeves.

    Thanks as always for the help and advice!

    Mine has a hole thru the panel behind the seats and uses a socket head cap screw.

    Are you sure that is the head of a bolt and not a nut welded in place for the SHCS?

    update: I just looked at mine, it looks the same. What you're seeing is a captive nut.

      Doug,

      Yes, I see! Thanks. The Allen cap head bolt comes from the front. I'll have to drill out the AVO shock mounting holes, too. It must be a metric size or something, because the hole is slighter smaller than 1/2 "

      Thanks.

        I don't know anything about the AVO shocks other than many Seven owners use them.

        You might double check with AVO or someone who has used them before drilling them out.
