rear suspension

4 posts in this topic

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.
