Australian Leopard AS1 - Bump stops
Russell Montgomery

In 1990 the volute spring rebound dampers were progressively replaced with an improved hydraulic type.  This new system remained in service for the remaining life of the Leopard AS1.

The colour close-ups are taken of the Leopard AS1 located at Manuka Canberra ACT.  The damper itself has a shroud around it to reduce the effect of mud.
