    Worn control arm bushes

    Hi all, So I’ve been getting a horrendous rough ride lately, vibrations through the floor and steering wheel. The van feels twitchy and unstable. I got my camera under the van and found the rear arm bushes have splits in them. I am assuming this is not normal?

    Rear suspension removal 4Motion

    I've noticed that the rubber under my rear springs has disintegrated and I ordered those uprated powerflex ones. As I tow a lot and the van is loaded most of the year I also got 13mm spacers for the back. This is a 4motion, do I have to remove the cv axles to complete this task? I know the...

    Front control arm bushes gone after 7000 miles

    Hi, after only 12000 ks in my 2020 T6 Caravelle the front control bushes have gone. After taking it to the place of purchase I was informed it wouldn’t be under warranty due to the fact I have had the van lowered. Any idea to the course? Would going over speed bumps aggressively cause this?
