suspension bush or arm worn

Post by Siobhan »

Hi 
Does anyone know if fixing worn suspension bush or arm on t25 1989 high top would be really expensive? Am thinking of buying this van and this came up at its last MOT. I would appreciate any advice.

thanks
Siobhan

Depends if you are doing the work yourself or not really..

A whole brand new trailing arm is just south of £300

Just replacing the bush is considerably less, couple of hours labour I would guess..

Have a look at this by James Akers, this is what you may have to do if you do the work yourself, I say may as it depends on the condition of the arm.  Either way it is a good guide.

thanks for all your advice. Have now taken plunge and bought a 1974 t25 pop top that needs lots of work!
