    My car was looked at by ex audi mechanic, and we narrowed the handling issues down to the rear trail arm bushes and possibly the 'carrier'? with 4 bolts in , both arms move quite freely with prybar you can see it in the wheels and arm, is it a big job replacing the bushes and the carrier, the carrier thing is rusted and so are the bolts and the last thing is o/s/r spring isnt sitting in position it is hanging over the edge does this mean the arm is bent inwards by any chance.
    this guy at schellenboom has saved me from spending thousands of euros on apparently non existing problems on this car
    thanks for any response

    not sure what you refer to as the carrier. But the bushes arnt hard to replace if you're fitting poly ones. And it improves the feel of the car drastically

    Its just the bush that goes into that, there is nothing to wear on the "carrier"
