    Hi Guys,
    Need to replace both my front Suspension arms the steel ones which are on the vertical and support the air strut. One side was a advisory at last years Mot but has got worse this year, the other side now creaks like a door opening and is also loosened.

    is it just a case unbolting, and supporting the air strut, no special tools ?


    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Hello Malcom,

    I have the exact same suspension arms to replace, did you find a video to help you, as I’ve searched on you tube and I can’t find anything. I would appreciate any diagrams or video you found useful which may help me

    Many Thanks
    Richard

    You'll almost certainly need to redo the tracking afterwards.
