Re: Rear Suspension Failure

I'm curious to know how suddenly these bushings or Pins have sign of wear? I have just had an MOT fail today on the Central rear upper suspension component. My last Service at a Mitsubishi accredited service last Dec 2020 made no mention of any problems on rear or front which also failed and came u...

Re: Rear Suspension Failure

At the time, my father-in-law, who works in motor parts said he'd heard there was a flaw with the 'bushing' "Bushings are cushions made of rubber, polyurethane (often shortened to “poly” or “urethane”) or ot...
