Conclusions Stress Concentration on Tie-Rod Connector is not expected to be a problem. Upper bracket and washer/tie-rod weld stress concentrations are potential hazards. At current dimensions, the damper would require a Young’s Modulus of approximately 30,000 psi (Polyester Elastomer). A more conventional rubber may be used with a smaller washer thickness.
