MoT problem . Suspension Arm pin or bush worn.

Recommended Posts

I have a MOT repair advisory "Suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement offside front Inner".    


Not being familiar with the terminolgy or running gear, does any one have a schematic or able to clarify the part they are talking about. Is there more than one suspension arm on a wheel?

This is probably the rear suspension bush(es) which is quite a common problem.


When mine were replaced the rear axle was lowered; although I don't know that is necessary.
