Over 42 degrees and no contact with anyone.
What did I learn. Check the wheel nuts after getting a tyre fitted in Perth. Panic, yes it was so hard not to. Feeling so responsible for my daughter and what I had got her into. Then working too fast and hard trying to sort it out, was using my water very fast.
I had shade with umbrellas but God it was hot.
The reality. I had 125 litres of fuel so could run the air con if needed for long enough. I had sufficient water for at least 24 hrs. I had shade an awning if needed. ( My travel plan was that if There was no contact with me in four hours that I was in trouble.)
One stud was snapped, the disc resting on the rim. So jack got under the axle and removing one nut from the other wheels got me back into Cue.
What did I not have with me. I had taken a lot of my gear out to move my daughter to Cue to live, so no air jack and my extra water carrier of 20 litres.
As far as the Ashburton Downs Road even being careful I hit one washout at 30 kph and that was a lesson to slow even more.
from what i can gather, they are interchangeable. i've got the bushes floating around, may be in my tool bag, or i may just have a few as spares. but i have 4 x shocks, can't tell you how old or how many k's

I just missed out this month on set of news springs and shocks on the Patrol forum by not logging in enough. They had only gone from the dealers to a suspension shop. Sometimes I do kick myself.
All is fixed.
It turned out to be a washer that had flogged out allowing the shock absorber bush to move around. My usual mechanic had turned up to work on Saturday which is unusual and fixed it in around ten minutes.
Thanks to Cheif wiggum and Farkass for jumping in with options for me last night and this morning. Amazing to think on a motorcycle thread that this help is at hand. Thanks Guys much appreciated.
Linda has just finished radiation therapy with a very good prognosis is so we have booked her a week in Kalbarri. I have a day's work in Carnarvon so this trip is very important to us.
