Radius Arm Spacer Washer

Radius Arm Spacer Washer
Compatible with GQ and GU Patrols with coil front, the Aupart Radius Arm Spacer Kit is primarily used to ‘push’ the front diff forward (approx. 15mm) to give better clearance for larger tyres so they don’t hit the front mud flaps and guards. Another common issue with the Patrols is for the standard radius arm washers to bend following excessive impacts, which can result in premature failure of the arm. Bigger tyres also generally means bigger shocks with longer travel. This increase in travel can put additional stress on the rear radius arm rubber bushings, causing them to distort or become dislodged. The High Tensile Aupart Radius Arm Spacers, being stronger than standard washers, resist bending and aid in radius arm longevity. The Aupart Radius Arm Spacers are also designed in such a way as to ‘cup’ the rubber bushing, preventing it from being dislodged, resulting in improved bushing longevity.

It is recommended that you check the clearance from your diff to your panhard rod before and after fitting the Radius Arm Spacers. The Panhard Rod and Diff Pumpkin run very close on some GU Patrol depending upon other suspension work that has been done on the vehicle. Pushing the diff forward with the spacers can result in the panhard rod making contact with the diff or the front of the radius arm, affecting the articulation of the panhard rod, which can place additional stress on the panhard welds and brackets, leading to premature failure.

Three options of the Aupart Radius Arm Spacer/ Washer are now available. These now include:

AX0338 is basically an upgraded washer, with improved bushing cup. It does not provide for any spacing component. Just replace the original washer with AX0338 which is a stronger replacement with longer side walls.

AX0186 is our ‘original’ radius arm spacer. The washer is stronger, allows for 15mm ‘push’ of the diff, and has low profile side walls that still offer bush cupping for improved bushing longevity.

AX0337 is our improved version of the original. Still offering 15mm ‘push’ of the diff, and an overall stronger washer, the side walls are increased substantially to provide for better cupping of the bushing and further improved bushing longevity.
