Shock Absorbers & Springs
The first Silver Shadow and Bentley T models were fitted with a hydraulic ram on top of a "Short Stroke" front shock absorber. From VIN 11500 (approximately) the front height control system was deleted and a "Long Stroke" front damper was fitted. A number of cars have been modified from short to long stroke shock absorbers. Cars with short stroke shocks still have the T shaped ram on top of them which is visible when you lift the bonnet. Cars with long stroke shocks just have the circular top plate visible under the bonnet through the centre of which you can see the top of the damper piston. Before ordering short stroke dampers please confirm whether your car has been modified. We are happy to supply a kit to modify your car. Further details and information are available here.
