Re: Unexplained negative camber

I'm not sure what strut is on the other side I'm assuming it would be the correct one , good idea about the top mount I'll investigate more , incorrect camber was found once I bought the car , I checked the cars previous Mots and found it had inner wear on tyres on most of the advisories

On a separate thing does anyone know where I can buy a pair of self adjusters for the rear drums or what part number they are as I can't find them anywhere.

Re: Unexplained negative camber

If you are certain that the struts are correct, and after checking the top mounts all is still ok there, think about the bottom arms. Do they look recent? Could be incorrect.

Measure the distance from inner pivot to outer ball joint and ask on here for someone to measure theirs.

For the brake adjusters. If you have Bosch rear drums, like the Panda, then this is what you need. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FIAT-PAND...38.m2548.l4275
This company do not list for the Idea, but the Fiat listings say same for both. Brilliant price too, as previously I've only found about twice that price each. This seems to be for the pair.

I changed the shock absorber and it's all sorted
