    Default Rear lower control arm

    Replaced my rear arb bushes prior to having a Hunter 4 wheel alignment done. Alignment went well, except they couldn't adjust the camber on the rear right. Turning the bolt had no effect. Is this the lower control arm?

    Anyone had any experience changing them? Easy/cheap????


    Quoted £162 to replace and adjust alignment.

    Had another look, and it's the rear lower control arm additional.
    Anyone replaced one of these?

    Have a look at here
    http://opeloem.com/vauxhall/signum_2...nsion_arm.html

    It's item 22. It looks like a bar in the picture, but is actually box section. It sits in front of the large rear control arm and controls the camber (the inner bolt has a eccentric washer for adjustment).

    Only two bolts, so shouldn't be an issue, just wanted some advice.

    Just ordered on from carparts connexions £20, much cheaper than local Vx who wanted 50.
