I used the Nipple Therapy on a Suzuki GT750 calliper set. Thought I was lost with the restoration, with stripped and sheared nipples. You've rescued what I was starting to think were scrap brakes as replacements are just as badly damaged or made of 'unobtainium'. They look quite good too. Thank you!

AL-KO Axle Repair

This is a fully remanufactured AL-KO rear axle as fitted to Hymer, Ducatto, Swift, etc..

We handle all carriage arrangements - we collect your axle and deliver the remanufactured axle.

A straight forward, no hassle service.

The most common cause of failure in these axles would seem to be broken torsion bars.

There is a sequence of events.

  1. The manufacturer fits a grease nipple the sole function of which is to give the owner a warm feeling while doing very little good.
  2. Due to the lack of grease in the right place, The trailing arm bushes wear away and, in turn, wear the trailing arm.
  3. The resulting shoogle (old Scots word) snaps the torsion bar.

This is pre-ordained by the designer.

Cure:  Strip, clean and shotblast axle casing. Fit new bushes and drill axle tube and bushes - importantly the bushes have been manufactured with a 360 degree internal grease track ensuring all around lubrication from the grease nipple. This puts the grease exactly where it needs to be.

Repair worn trailing arms if necessary and grind to size. Assemble with new seals and paint.

This axle is remanufactured to our exacting standards.

It comes with a two year warranty and an expectation of a full lifetime's work ahead of it.

Our axles are offered on an exchange basis. We send you an axle but we want your old one back when it comes off.

There are a number of variations on these axles. If we do not have one to suit you, we can pick up your one and return it within ten days ready to fit. We use TNT who give an overnight service all over the UK.

Unlike the situation in reverse, we do not charge double for deliveries to the south of England, nor do we treat the bottom end as a foreign country.
