Rear axle and front suspension
#1
Hello,

Two questions related to my 2008 Berlingo Multispace.

First about rear axle and tires. During this summer the right rear tire has worn excessively on the outer side. The left rear tire is ok. From where I could start to sort out the problem? This is my wife's car and according to she, she hasn't collated to anything with the right tire but who knows...

The other issue is the front suspension. I replaced the the original shock absorbers and spring (driven 230 tkm) with new ones and now the front end is a few centimeters higher compared to the old springs. The spare parts shop claims that I've got the right springs  (diesel with ac). Has anyone noticed that with new set of spring the front end stands somewhat higher compared to old ones? I wondering that has the old spring loosen up to some extend and therefore there is a clear difference in height?

Maybe your wife has lost weight. New springs will settle/weaken over time and even the new shocks can hold the vehicle up slightly higher after rebound. Sounds like a possible rear axle bearing on its way out - might be worth getting wheel alignment checked (with a proper rig) to check what is happening with wheel camber & toe-in.

If the car is a B9 it doesn't have axle bearings as it has a solid rear axle.

The car is B9. I'll get the wheel alignment checked. Anyways, it is a bit strange to have a solid axle and only one tire wearing of unevenly.

It has trailing arm bearings in both ends of the axle. Can you see any actual lean on the wheel from the rear of the vehicle ? If it's wearing to the outside it doesn't sound like the arm bearings as they lean the other way. How old is the tyre and is it just worn out ?
So where does this bit go then ?

You are wrong.

The B9 has a solid rear axle . . . No trailing arm bearings.

What do they sell these for then ? Is the B9 completely different to the older ones ? What do the wheels move up and down on ? Please explain it to me as I am now completely at a loss and excuse my stupidity for not understanding.

The axle bearings you link to are for the Berlingos that use them, the M49 & M59.  Rolleyes

Not understanding how something works doesn't make you stupid . . . but what is stupid (and rude) is dismissing the knowledge of someone who does, just because you don't.

When I posted post #3 instead of ignoring it and carrying on stating they had axle bearings maybe it would have been a lot wiser of you to look it up instead of putting your efforts into posting links to axle bearings that aren't used on the B9.

I won't bother taking the time to explain to you the layout of the rear suspension on the B9, just look it up on Google, like you should have done in the 1st place!
