    Hello everyone, do any of the people know what shock absorbers were used on a standard MK2 Marlin ? Also any idea what steering column bush was used on the under bonnet end next to the coupling ?

    Thanks all.

    Front shocks are Triumph Herald rears.
    Rear shocks are standard Marina
    But consider fitting Spax adjustables front and rear.
    Steering column bushes are Classic Mini. Change both the top and the bottom, it's not much more work.

    If you are poking around the steering replace the Triumph 2000 donut as well as the bottom UJ.
