Am I being blind?! Bump stops?

Hey,

Back again, still on the issue of my steering box , decided to get one shipped over from the states, as the output shaft is too damaged to hold a good enough seal!

However before installing my new steering box. Iím struggling to see any form of bump stop/steering stop?

Ie- a threaded bolt that can be adjusted or preset to stop the wheels going full lock and eventually damaging the steering box (which is what happened to us!)

Allowing the gearbox to burst an end cap!


Iíve uploaded some pictures of the steering on our bus (yes itís a right hand drive U.K version before you ask!)

Would anyone be able to clarify if there bus has stops? Or any reason the bus wouldnít?


Thanks again chaps!

Yes, you should have bump stops. I see the pad in the first picture but you have the actual stop off the edge of the picture. It should be above the king pin bearing. You'll have a stop on one side and the other stop on the other side.

Great thanks for the reply, is it that black circle on the right hand side of the first photo at the edge? I’ll have to have a better look this week

It will be a square nub on the axle. The adjuster, which is nothing more then a bolt and a jam nut will be on the steering knuckle.
