    Default My car has a rear suspension problem

    My car is having to go in to the stealers because of some strange suspenion problems. The first sign was that my rear tyres are getting a strange wear pattern in the way of flat spots on the inner edges of the tread and now the back end feels very gittery and when the rear hits a bump or hole it seems to send the back off line and makes for a very uneasy drive and I also have extreame noise from the back which is very annoying and tiresom.
    I have been told by various people that it could be the Camber or Shocks or bushes but until Thursday I wont know for sure.
    The car is a September 56 plate and has done 32000 miles so hopefully the warranty will sort out anything major.
    What do you guys think it might be?

    Sounds to me like the rear upper control arms, they are a common fail.

    Do you think the Warranty will cover this

    Rear shocks are a common failing point too. It could be a combination of bits
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Shocks failing at 32000 thats really bad. When I was Taxi-ing I ran a 04 Galaxy and I mainly did Airports and in the 100.000 miles I never had a failed shock or spring put plenty of front Drop Links
