Rear trailing arm damaged

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

  • Hi all,

    I am currently in the process of replacing my rear spring plates with new sway away adjustables. In the process I have found that the holes in the trailing arm appear to be flogged out. I presume this is because the bolts have been lose at some point and the movement had flogged out the holes in both the spring plates and the trailing arms.

    I have also posted this to the pelican parts forum to seek opinions. You can see most on there are suggesting it needs to be replaced.

    So it looks like I may need a left rear trailing arm for an 86 911. Anyone have one or know where I can get one?

 Good luck trying to find a new one, as I was told they are no longer available from Porsche and none in Germany,  yet try Craig at Buik Motorworks here in Adelaide 82971400, as I reckon they had a second hand one

 I had an issue with mine 'apparently' after my little off last year, yet turned out to be just adjustment required.
