    Tom X7 c5s don't have trailing arms (see pic) Do you mean the anti-roll bar links?

    (ignore the steel spring in the pic, different model; the link is item 4)

    I mentioned the roll bar links because you had a roll bar bush problem 3 months ago. Most of these bushes and small items are MUCH cheaper from the UK by mail as you will have noticed. Locally before I went to a dealer I'd contact someone like European Auto Imports (Sydney), Dapco (Sydney), or Caravelle Imports (Melbourne), but it would help if there was a better description, as well as the VIN.

    There was a time when Citroens did have trailing arm suspension, so you can see my confusion, but the C5 X7 is multilink. The longitudinal arm restrains the wheel when you crash into a hole, so that sort of road could wear the mounting early.

    Heres a pic of the roll bar and height sensor as seen from the back. What bush is needed?

    Bushes for the longitudinal arms of the multi-link then. Try the usual suspects as mentioned; if all else fails there is a dealer. Your local mechanic can use the pics to email what is needed if necessary if he doesn't see many Cits.
