    Question Help anyone?

    I was hearing a small noise come from the rear suspension, took the car to Seward's and they told me it was the suspension top arms!
    They quoted the replacement in 326£.
    Has anyone had this problem before?
    Can anyone show me the skematics of the rear suspension?
    Thank's

    Have you checked to see if it is them?

    Stick your arm in above the wheel (between wheel and arch) and pull on the inside of the wheel/tyre towards you....if you get any movement at all and a metallic clunk type sound, then it confirm thats them. Make sure wheels are on the ground and not jacked up.

    I bought mine off ebay and they cost me £60.00 delivered and 5 hours of my own time to fit, did the ARB bush's at the same time. There is a how 2 here somewhere on how to do these!

    Its not a hard job mate, just an awkward one. Me and my dad did mine so it made it slightly easier. Just make sure you have the right tool's, etc and a lot of patience as the bolt under the rear frame of the car literally unlocks at half-a-thread at a time and can be a ball-ache!

    Best of luck!
