REAR AXCEL
#1
Hiya all.. I went to get the tracking done and the steering is worse, I asked for it to be checked again and I was shown the gauge showing spot on but I noticed the nearside rear is toeing in but the offside rear is inline with the front wheel.
 Question. can the rear axcel be realigned ?

Sounds like the rear axle trailing arm bushes may be worn on the N/S lots of threads about on this one. You Tube also has some info too, the rear axle is generic to Citroen / Peugeot with lost of vehicles having the same torsion bar suspension.

300 quid for a new axle

and a half day to fit it unless its siezed.

Needs a LOOOONG t50 75mm plus with OD less than 9mm OD - id buy this first and check the 4 bolts to the chassis are not corroded in place.

Mines was a 54 plate and it came out without a fight.

Thanks for your responses.
 I have looked around and a refurbished rear axle for £270 posted or a new patern part for £300 from IM axles seems like a bargain. The change doesn't seem too difficult either. I am in a quandary now as the van has done 164k miles should I bother.. Anyway I have to change the front pads at the weekend so I will check the axle then.
 I liked the idea of a grease nipple, has anyone fitted one to the rear axle bush either side ? I should think it is a take the axle apart job to fit a grease nipples..

I had the opportunity to check the rear axle without a load and the wheels are straight so it would seem the N/S bearing is shot as you say..
 Thanks for your help, I will have to decide weather to replace the axle or not because of the mileage...

There is a thread on here somewhere from a member that did put grease nipples in the rear axle with accompanying pictures. Try a search to find it.
Are we there yet????? Huh

I replaced a rear axle on a friend van about 3 years ago simple easy job if your handy around a spanner. The main problem I had was a rotten brake line no Biggie's really made up a new line flared each end and jobs a goodun.
You have to ask yourself the question where do you draw the line is it a good motor and worth repairing.
