Hey, I bought these new rear shocks for my 71' super beetle, there gas pressured non-adjustables and they don't have have any rubber bushings, Is this normal or can I go ahead and install them?
 
Thanks,
Dan

Hi,
Most car manufacturers sell everything seperate...
also the shocks could fit another car , but the rubbers may be different.
same with NoN Super beetles front shocks...
the rubbers are available seperately...
 
The top rubbers for supers can be very expensive too...
maybe More expensive then the shock absorber themselves...
 
best of luck

Hey thanks for the advice but it turns out it was just the type of the shock, the rubber bushing is inside the eye of the shock I did'nt realize that at the time.

Thanks,
Dan
