Can anyone please tell me if the Morris Minor rear shock absorbers will fit my 1958 Wolseley 1500, thank you.

They may well fit Roger but the rating will almost certainly be different, the only way to be sure is to check the part numbers. I may have some 1500 rear shocks, if they are of interest let me know and I will have a rummage.

Hi Roger

No, they don't fit the 1500, the 1500 damper is secured to a bracket under the rear seat squab with the linkarm going to the shacklebracket, whereas the Minor unit fastens onto the shacklebracket with the linkarm going to the boot floor member.

Hopefully, Graham might be able to help you with his 1500 shock absorbers.

Hi Roger,
I'm sorryfor the delay but I have only just seen your last two posts, I will look shock absorbers out over the weekend.
If you put a wanted ad in the classified section with your contact details I will get in touch via that or alternatively if you join the Register my details are available on line to members.
Regards,
Graham.

Hi Graham,
Thank you for the reply, I have put a quick ad in the classified section for now but it says it may not get posted for a few days, any help will be appreciated.
Regards
Roger

Hi Roger, as stated the Minor ones are no good & neither are the MG Midget.
I used MGB ones on my 1500. I also may have a spare set if Graham doesn't find his.

Good news Roger, I hope you can now finish your 1500. I have amended the advert as requested.
