Rebuilding my AMP B4. Just a quick query, when bolting the seat tower assembly to the frame, do I need a washer between the frame and the tower? (does that make sense?) There's four bolts, when I stripped it AGES ago, I forgot to note if there was any washers there. I've emailed AMP and they say not, but I'm certain there must be some sort of bush?

Anyone?

Depends on shock you are using STD AMP no washers. Others like RISSE Washer /Spacer between tower and frame on the bottom two studs [gives the shock room inside tower]

$20 dollars!!! any knowledge of how much a NOS AMP shock might be then -think mine is beyond servicing (shaft worn / maybe bent)
Sourcing such parts could be just the project for the NewYear...
