Seating Rear suspension spring
« on: November 17, 2021, 02:08:22 PM »
Hello
I am replacing rear springs.
Is there a position the bottom end of spring should sit in the frame?
Also the manual mentions insulators yet from all the drawings, pictures I have seen & indeed on the spring removed there only appears to be a top one.
I am a complete novice & any advice would me much appreciated.
Regards
Jerry

I would be interested to see the answer on the fitting position at the bottom.

Like you say there only seems to be an insulator at the top,  https://www.ricambio.co.uk/rear-coil-spring-rubber-seat-classic-fiat-500-126

There are some good pics here of the BIS rear suspension  http://club126uk.co.uk/club126uk/forum/index.php?topic=10831.0

There are two insulators on the Bis, not sure if the air cooled is the same?

Thanks
Here's a pic of air cooled.
No bottom one

I ended up rotating until it sat evenly but no clear locking of bottom end of spring.
I will take a picture when i do other side.
