    Default Renault 15 Rear End Traing Arms

    Hi

    Advertisement


    I understand that you don't simply replace the bushes on the Renault 15 rear trailing arms but actually replace the trailing arms themselves?

    Would anyone know where I can get these rear trailing arms from?

    Regards

    Alan

    I used two adjustable rod ends, better than original

    They look good, do they twist like the originals do though? To allow for body roll?

    Thanks for your reply.

    What Brand and Part No. are they?

    Looking at the Service Manual last night, doesn't the rear roll bar bolt onto the rear trailing arms?

    I'd like to know where you got them from too.

    Regards

    Yes the rear anti-roll bar does bolt to the trailing arms, so if you used these you would need to fabricate a bracket. but would be interesting to see what Driven did when he installed the trailing arms.

    Hi Guys,
    I bought my parts from Linear Bearings
    http://www.linearbearings.com.au/wp-...-Brochure-.pdf
    The speed shops charge way too much
    You need to work out dimensions as I did this 12 years ago. I have no pics unfortunately.
    I was just copying what V8 super cars were doing

    I fabricated a bracket for the antiroll bar. This was secured on the rod end threads by extra nuts
    This gives you some backwards/forwards adjustment as well
    I drilled holes in the bracket and plug welded studs at the right points.

    Need to offset the barrel as well to fit in the roll bar.
    Some roll bars have holes for mounting, the heavier ones.
    Lighter ones have brackets for attaching the round bar.
    As the rod ends are narrower than the original part, spacers will do the trick
    See pic with spacers to offset and sketch of bracket I made

    Sweet design but not sure how you would comply with engineering requirements for roadworthyness . Is the car registered ? I used to flaunt the rules a little too . I couldn,t afford a custom heavier sway bar for a R17 some time back so made mountings to run two R12 units , one in the standard position and one running backward , forming a square . worked well , nice oversteer !!!!! Another trick I did was to run renault 18 rear shockers in a 17 . A bit long from memory but a lot firmer and cheap .

    PS Paint them all matt black and it then looks like original
    They don't even know what a R15 is anyway.
