replacement for pad buffer on discovery cross member


Recommended Posts

I have found this http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-90575573 and it goes here http://www.allbrit.de/UNI.cfm?PAGE=811127&SPRACHE=EN its part number 15 on the diagram. I am mounting an aluminium frame for a flat bed onto my own rebuilt crossmember brackets.

The bodywork rests on the crossmembers without fruther fixing (possibly glue) .

I need to bolt the aluminium frame to those brackets, so to reduce vibration I want a big rubber washer to fit into the bolt set up. The original buffers fit the bill but at £100 for the four I see no point in using them especially when I would have to modify them anyway.

So does anyone have a link to something of similar thickness (about 5mm) or thicker that I could use instead and has an approximately 10mm hole through it.

I'm sourcing all the parts I need before I start so there no big worries about changes in design.
