I do understand that the best thing to do is get it fixed ASAP.
Both the nuts securing the driver’s side Rear Upper Trailing Arm were found to be missing. The washers were likewise gone. The front bolt was just sitting there, while the rear bolt was only going through one hole.
One of the rear holes may have been slightly “ovaled out,” but there isn’t any play with an inserted bolt. The ears don’t seem to have been bent.
The vehicle appears to have tolerated my driving sans one Rear Upper Trailing Arm for what probably has been a few months.
The question is - with the driving habits of a granny - just how unsafe will driving with a missing Rear Upper Trailing Arm be?
