    Default Replacing rear upper control arms and bushes?

    Hello

    Just had the wheel alignment checked on my EP3.

    Other than reporting a little play in a rear ARB drop link and the steering wheel now being slightly off centre, I can see on the printout that both rear cambers are -2 degrees.

    As it happens, this is visible if you stand back and compare to the fronts which are set to -1 degree.

    The suspension is standard with no adjusters fitted.

    I was thinking that it must be the rear upper control arm bushes that are worn or soft for there to be -2 degrees camber on both sides?

    The control arms look easy to change but how much of a pig are the top bushes in the hub carrier to replace?

    Cheers

    Funnily enough my oem were running at neg 2.5. Looked like this from behind. / \ . If you are going to get some rear camber arms it might be worth getting a fresh Bush and bolt for each side too. The bolts can be a pain.

    Oops

    Just ordered arms and bushes, no bolts.

    I'd better get some penetrating oil on there sharpish!

    Cheers
