THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You dont know how much this helps me! BTY when you measured, was the car jacked up from the side with the rear wheel in the air or were the wheels on the ground when you measured?

Reason i ask is cause the pivoting action of the arm could mean that if you measured while the wheel was suspended in the air, the distance of 61.3 cm will increase maybe .2 or .7 more cm from when wheel is on the ground cause the bear cartridge will pivot away slightly from the rear bolt when grounded.

Sorry, I should have specified it more clearly. Each rear wheel was in the air in turn when I measured. I first jacked up at the rear jacking point, as high as my floor jack would go and measured the left (drivers' side) rear ontrol arm. I did see what you are talking about the pivoting, but that was at the front bolt point. I then lowered the car and did the same on the right (passenger's side).

If you need measurements with both rear wheels rolled up onto ramps, let me know.

Regards, Maurice.
