Bent arm at bottom of drop-link
#1
Hello again.
Having just got a pair of new drop-links, followed by a look-see with the wheel off I noticed the bottom joint of the 'noisy' link is connected at a steep angle to the 'arm' coming from under the car..?
This 'arm' is looking like it's been previously bent hence when it mates with the drop-link it's not a good fit IMO.
What is this arm called? Will it 'bend' back so the drop-link ball-joint sits at 90' (not 45') to the drop-link again ..or is this arm sprung-steel & it's a replacement-item..?
(Cannot find any reference to this 'lower arm' anywhere..??

That is your anti-roll bar. When the car is lifted at the front, it will poke downwards pronouncedly.

Yes, it's possible to distort the anti-roll bar however the Berlingo ones are quite thick and thus among the harder ones to damage.
