    Question Can Anyone Identify These Suspension Parts Please?

    my rear camber bolts and toe bolts are stuck fast, so no other option but to have them cut off. i've been given a choice of fitting new arms to the car, or just replace the bushes on the existing arms. which would be the best option for me? any help and advice will be much appreciated. thanks in advance. PaZ!

    also, if anyone has a rough idea of the cost of parts that would also help me out alot. cheers.

    Top one is rear trailing suspension arm, about £35 each for a decent one

    Second one is lower suspension arm. TBH I have not known anyone that has replaced one of this unless they have damaged it. Your rear end issues will mainly be caused by the first item. Can you get new bolts from VX anyone?

    Hiya mate. Yeah I've already bought all the nuts & bolts & washers, but they can't remove the old ones, as you can see in the pic they are rusted solid. I've been told that the bush in the lower suspension arm will need to be changed when they cut the bolts off. So I'm just seeing if it's cheaper for me to just buy the arm instead. From what you said I think I'll buy a new trailing arm & just replace the bush on the lower suspension arm.

    Should be able to get away with putting a grinder to the bolt rather than cut it. that way u only have to replace the bolts.

    How did you get on with that rear lower arm? Looks like I'm going to have to replace mine. Did you buy a new one?
