Bottom arms and Ball joints

Did the bottom arms change in size when the doblo changed shape on the 55 reg, if so are these bottom arms dealer only parts?? I am asking this because i have recently had both bottom arms changed due to wear on the bushes and it has started rubbing the tyres off. I have been told that this is due to the fitting of the bottom arms of a old shape doblo and mine is an 07 doblo. can anyone confirm that the bottom arms are a diferent length from a 54 to an 07?? thanks.

Re: Bottom arms and Ball joints

Not too sure I can answer the question. Did you get the steering geometry checked after? If you did surely it would be wildly out if the arms are different.
