205 Gti Stainless Steel Front Bumper Slider Mounts
As these are no longer available from Peugeot we embarked on re-manufacturing them. We designed and manufactured a press tool to enable the finished item to closely resemble to the original part.
Due to the bumper sliders location on the car it exposed to the elements and any road salts. They are extremely prone to rusting as the original part is made from mild steel.
BakerBM’s Bumper sliders are manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel. An accurately laser cut profile is pre-bent 6 times then enters our press tool to form the correct shape. Rusting will now not be any issue.
Can be purchased individually or as pairs (two per car).
Replaces standard rubber joints and mounts on all the mounting points of a rear beam.
Fitting this kit means the rear beam is rigidly attached to the chassis. Giving a more predictable rear end under heavy cornering and more control during lift off over steer.
Front flexible joints are replaced by acetal bushes (4 in the kit) while rear rubber “sandwich” mounts are replaced with “aircraft spec” quality aluminium blocks with offset studs (2 in the kit). This kit is an evolution and improved fit version of our original BBM-SA-R kit. Unlike standard items, our uprated items will not wear out!
This modification is a real benefit to a track orientated 205/309. It will also benefit a road car with respect to handling characteristics but at an expense of a slight increase in road noise experienced in the cabin.
These uprated rubbers replace standard soft rubbers in the shock absorbers top mounts, located just under strut turrets.
The rubbers are constructed to a very high standard using a rubber compound (with an increased Shore Rating over original), which is considerably firmer than the standard rubbers, making them far stiffer. They give firmer ride and less front suspension flex.
This is the power steering cooling loop pipe which runs under the car on 205 GTI models equipped with PAS. The originals are prone to rust due to their location.
Using an original we have re-manufactured them using a CNC tube bender, then a custom jig has been made to manipulate the final bend. Using CNC technology ensures their complicated shape is repeatedly replicated accurately.
