Rear Strut help sought -156 sw 1.8ts '01
Ironically, on my way to the inspection this morning, the bottom rear left spring seat gave way, causing it to rub on the tyre. I didn't know exactly what had happened at the time, so just crossed my fingers. Amazingly I passed! But, on the way home I started to get smoke and that nasty burning rubber smell. Now I'm online trying to figure out what I need. I'd be happy to replace both sides together as prevention, and was hoping to be able to buy complete assemblies with springs to reduce the labour. Can't find that, and the strut assemblies I have found don't show the bottom cup in the photo. Sorry I don't know more about this, but can anyone give me a few hints?
