Re: T31 lower control arm bushes.


I was aware of the fact that the steering may need an alignment, but my car still steers perfectly. I've reached 172,000k's and my car has NEVER had a wheel alignment. I'm on my 3rd set of ST20s and average between 75,000 and 85,000k's per set. The car doesn't wander or pull to one side, doesn't scrub or feather the tyres and the tyres are wearing great. I check the tyres for correct air pressure and any irregular wear often, and rotate them every 5,000k's. Having a wheel alignment done is probably good advice for someone that just gets in and drives away without checking the above, but I've had bad experiences with reputable tyre and wheel alignment specialists, so I'll only get an alignment done if I think one is needed. emoticon

Re:


Hi Guys,

My wife's Exy is in need of replacing the lower control arms and bushes and also the rear engine mount.

Does Pedders Suspension do this replacement or should I order the lower control arms myself and take the parts to Pedders?

Re: T31 lower control arm bushes.


I'm not sure about the engine mount, but I've taken my other cars stub axle's with the press in ball joint to Pedders, and they replaced the joints for a small cost. You'll find that the small rubber mount in the control arm and the ball joint should be ok if you've driven mainly on the road. If I was to do them again, I would buy Nolathane mounts and ask them to press them in. Get them to check the ball joints and the other mount while its apart, but I've given mine a hard time and they were fine. Having bought replacement control arms online, I'm not sure of the quality of the rear rubber mount.
