Guys, I have a question regarding the rear suspension and how much articulation it should have.

 

I have removed the rear arms from my car which are still attached to the uprights, and I have noticed that it feels like the rubber bushes are bonded to the spindle pin. I can get approx 45 degrees movement each way from where the strut sits when in the car if I apply some force to the strut, but it bounces straight back to the original position when I let go of the strut.

 

I was really hoping not to mess with the outer bushes and leave the spindle pins alone, but I thought I should check what you guys opinions are. Is what I have described normal operation of the trailing arm outer pivot point and can I leave it as is?

No,
No, dont, unless you really have to!
The tales f woe and misery at getting them out, are all true.
After 30+ years in there,they are,,,, reluctant!
