Need some advice

Recommended Posts

So I've stripped the bolt hole that holds the rear strut to the trailing arm pretty badly. The bolt can pretty much be pushed through. What do you reckon is the best way to go about fixing this? Cheers.

Are there any write ups about removing the trailing arm/ handbrake cable?

There are many on google.

 

Its not overly difficult, and means you get to check the condition of your handbrake shoes etc.

Easiest to replace the entire arm and axle from one from a wrecker, otherwise you end up mucking around with bearings.
