Helper Spring Stoppers

I have recently discovered that my 2004 FG649 is missing what the shop guide calls "helper spring stoppers" (part #22 in the diagram below). I found what looks like the right part on eBay:


Unfortunately, the ad only lists a few FE models, and the seller doesn't seem to know much else about them. The part number is MB104718 -- does anyone know if this is likely to work on an '04 FG? Or maybe there's a non-OEM substitute out there that will do the job just fine?

I think it'd be highly likely to fit, there is not alot of difference between the 2wd and 4wd models apart from the front axle and they look the same as on the 4wd version.

Cool pics, Cameron. Thanks. The Timbrens are indeed on my list...very soon. My truck is also missing the rear bump stops it turns out (in addition to the helper spring stoppers), so its helpful to see what the rear setup is supposed to look like. Good stuff.

Timbren will tell your local dealer what to order if you call them with the exact dimensions once you’ve lifted the truck. The ones I ordered are different from stock fuso timbren. Call the timbren Engeneering or email them. They are helpful. depending on your truck you may want preload or not. Easy to take out of you don’t like the stiffness. The 1” rubber cylinder closest to mount is optional. That what creates preload on mine.

Like mentioned above our engineers love talking to prospective customers and have a wealth of knowledge!
