I have got my rear in bits and I am greasing all the suspension linkages. However when I removed the plates and looked on the inside of them they are quite badly scored. Has anyone ever seen this before and what is causing it?
The dog bone can move freely left/right on its bearing. On mine it picked a direction, and stopped against the plate. After that there is inevitable wear at that face. I really don't see a solution for it except using steel plates, so I just cleaned it and put it back together. You could put the worn face on the outside and start again, but I didn't.
If there's space for it?? Maybe a large washer each side would help, but its going to have to be a strange looking thing, like about an m14 fender/repair washer that's 1mm or less thick.
