I'm hoping someone has an answer for me on this as to what fits what-
I've currently got stock length 66-72 right side drum wide glide legs. My buddy lent me a set 4 over tubes that need dampers in them. Before I buy new dampers, I think these legs are a little newer than my lowers, because near the bottom of the tubes is a machined groove cut all the way around that I don't recall seeing on mine. And instead their being a snap ring to hold the damper assembly in, there seems to be a pressed in cap. Any thoughts?

perfect, thanks guys.

I did get the caps with with the tubes, so thats not a problem. Roach, if I get the correct year guts to the tubes, will they then work with my lowers? Or is this one of those not interchangable situations?

use just the top bushings, not the ones that clip in the slot on the tubes and they will work, did that on my 75 shovel front end.

the drum lowers are sim.

I don't quit understand this. You left the upper and lower bushings in the 75 slider or did you remove the upper bushings from the slider and use the later model upper bushings. Did you leave the lower bushing in the 75 slider?
Just curious.
