Trailing arms

Well, with the nice new trailing arms in (mmm nylothane bushes), I trundled down to Uni today and god-damn the ride is nice... I took a fun winding 6km dirt road, and played rally cars a little, and the rear end just sits soooo nicely. I can't wait to do the swaybars, it's gonna handle like a go-kart or rally car or something :)

I highly suggest doing the four rear trailing arms, and it's not a terribly hard job to do.. Jump down beside the car, grab one of the lower arms, and if you can rotate it around much at all, it probably needs doing.. mine were moving so much I was suprised there was any bush left at all!

Anyway, time to burn a few hours till 1pm when I have my first lecture :(:(

Re: Trailing arms

good stuff James. Now you just gotta dump the beast on it's arse.

i reckon mine need doing as there is a bit of play in them, plus the arse of my car seems to have a mind of it's own at times.
