Hi guys

Just had the MOT done but need to make some repairs.

All the lower suspension arms have come with advisories "pin or bush worn"

So I have a total of 6 advisories, 2 for the front and 4 ( 2 per side) for the rear including 2 x "radius arm front bush"

I'm familiar with the front control / suspension arms, but not the rear.
Is it just one suspension arm per side with 2 pins or bushes on each?

If someone can let me have a link to the part or parts that I need it would be much appreciated, cheers!

Look on PartSouq. ALl you need to do is put your VIN in and it comes up with your spec.

This link is for my T31 Facelift Tekna Manual but is for rear suspension.

Nissan doesn't sell the main bush separately and makes you buy the arm but I managed to find a site that supplied the bushes and these have been fine.

Thanks for the replies, appreciated, great resources there! Since posting this I've been to my local, budget mechanic and he has stopped fitting customer supplied parts, so he's looking at it next week and I'll leave that decision with him. However the front control arms have just arrived (Ace parts) and despite the part numbers being correct, one pin is longer than the other. I think the black pin is the wrong length. Anyone care to venture an opinion?

These are front control arms, but the rear rubber bushes are the weak points.
Your thread topic is a bit misleading.

Did just mine some days back.

Yeah, apologies , I've nothing to show for the rears as I've not purchased anything yet and I don't know precisely which parts are referred to in the MOT advisories. Still good to see you have your bushes in hand!
I'm inclined to pay someone to change the complete parts rather than just the bushes as its less labour cost.

There is a 10mm difference between the locating grooves. Shouldn't they be identical? The parts are from different manufacturers.

They're not a matching pair, but I don't know which is the right one.

I would go only Lemförder or TRW parts. Last option Delphi .
