    Default rear suspension

    Hi All, Im new here so feeling my way round,,really dark in here.

    I need to replace a number of bushings on my rear suspension.
    Has anyone found out what bush will fit the inside of the upper control arm, no problem geting the outer one. Also there is another link or arm lower down, its about 9" long with bush either end. would like to keep origonal arms if i can.

    Replace the whole rear upper control arm - don't bother messing about with trying to replace the bushes and keep the old arm, you'll save little money and it'll be a lot more effort.

    as above... the arms are cheap enough to replace rather than spend the time & effort imo
