    Thumbs up Rear control arms

    I've just finished replacing the rear suspension control arms and I can't believe how worn the old one where . They where almost falling out while wiggling them to see how bad they where

    I'm looking forward to my ride to work tomorrow now as i've been noticing some knocking for a while. Handling should be much improved
