Full Version: rear suspension
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford KA / StreetKA Club
i have noticed on the ka i have that the rear suspension inside the boot
is not bolted down fully to the
car body.
the top mounting is about 1/4 of an inch off the car body.
i have tried tightening it down but it's
fully tightend
can i undo the nut & screw down the threaded pice it screws onto
to get it lower to get the bolt to go down tighter to the body work ?
any help would be great

does it feel loose or make any knocking sound.

Are both sides like this?

both are like it & i looked at the front ones & they are the same
they seem to be ok but it looks odd to me

i think it's the way they should be but i want to be sure
sounds like that the top mount rubbers ( on the underside of the stur top) have seen their day, it happend on my polo, the fronts were about 1/4 inch from the top, i replaced the machpherson strut top rubbers and theyre fine now, the fronts usually have bearings in them so these may be worn aswell.
