Thanks for confirming that. I see on the photo that you posted above, that the failed piece appears to be brown/beige in color and probably high density foam rubber. I notice on the Scuderia website that what they are selling appears to be black, but I can't guess at material. Do you know if this item was updated? What color was the new one you installed?yes all sorted on the left hand side, but I can 'feel' movement now on the right hand side, and I can see the tell tail orange dust at the top mount (now I know what I'm looking for)
Thank you very much for the clarification. I’ll make sure to get all the latest pieces.yes you are correct they are a different material and a different shape, so you need to get the top plate, rubber block and the top cover (and the top bolt), so that it will fit together properly. I also got the rest of the hardware, rubber bump stop and top and bottom rubber donuts etc.
Here is a link to the front shocks diagram:Hey guys, faced with the same problem here on my 2005, I was hoping to get my local shop to handle it as they are pretty good with exotics. I was wondering though if at this stage I should also be replacing other suspension bushings besides just the front shocks. If someone could link to the appropriate parts diagram and list on Scuderia I would appreciate that very much, I always seem to have trouble navigating their pages and finding what I need.
Thanks much!Here is a link to the front shocks diagram:

That's for one side and would replace the inboard bushings on both the upper and lower control arms on one side. You can also buy similar from a well known auction site, but they are not usually branded and may or may not be identical.Thanks much!
In the suspension diagram there is a "front suspension bushing kit", for $425, is this for one side or both?
Well the price is certainly right, wow! I hope these fit....That's for one side and would replace the inboard bushings on both the upper and lower control arms on one side. You can also buy similar from a well known auction site, but they are not usually branded and may or may not be identical.

I have no way of knowing if your lower shock bushes might need to be changed, but if they do, you might look at these:So, if I ordered the hardware for the upper shock mount and these two bushing kits, am I good to go? No other parts will need to be changed? What about the tiny lower shock mount bushings?
