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

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.
