    confused rear suspension bush

    car has been in for some work and come out with a couple of advisory's:

    1 Nearside and offside trear outer bearing worn, allowing the inside of the rears tyres to wear.

    are these part of the trailing arm or something else.

    2 Rear shockers misting,
    will be on the phone to LMF as these are less than a year old Bilstiens.

    3 Nearside and offside stering rack slight play.

    cananybody show some light on number 1

    Thanks Phil

    Sounds very much like the upper control arms are knackered, also maybe worth getting the geometry set up right.

    Very easy to check them, with the car on the ground grab a hold of the top of the wheel and give a sharp pull. You will hear a knocking noise
