Does your 480 have tracking-problems? Does your car pull to one side? Or is your steering wheel vibrating? Read the posts in this category to find out what's going on.

rear axle / arm location

Post by Alan 480 » Wed Dec 30, 2015 8:59 pm

any idea where I can purchase the REAR rods that link between the chassis and the axle?

not the main Left to right Panhard rod, the other two, not trailing arms!

tried a couple of places i'd normally try and not much luck, ALL the listed options on evil buy ones are in Germany :(

I redid all my suspension (including the rear) a year or so ago and did get some. It would have been a mix of eBay, Amazon and Mr Auto but I can't remember what came from where!

First time Ive' bought car bits from Amazon!

Parts fro Volvo do list them, so will try them in New Year!!

Many thanks for the info, as a useful source for the C30 as well :-)

I will also try local factors on the 'off chance' they have them
