Rear suspention longitudinal link!!

Post by Jim66a »

Hi, Has anyone any tips or advice for replacing item 3 (longitudinal link I think) Is it best to replace as a whole or just the bushes?
On mine bush 11 has failed and item 3 contacts the hub carrier item 20 causing a knock. You can just see the point of contact in the photo.
Will the nut (71) be inside the car?
Many thanks
Jim

Yes, good job there. Rear disc looks as though they could do with replacing before too long though.
