Lotus Excel Link rod (link pin or sway bar link) replacement
Lotus Excel link rod (link pin or sway bar link) replacement
Have you ever wondered how a Lotus Excel, or any car for that matter, manages to so stay on all four wheels when it’s driven around a corner?
Included amongst the wonderful components of a Lotus Excel’s suspension system, there is a device called the sway bar (also known as a stabiliser bar or anti-roll bar) which works to prevent body roll.
If your Lotus Excel is clunking from around the wheels, the tyres are wearing unevenly and the steering is loose, then there is a good chance there is a suspension problem and it could be coming from your Lotus Excel’s link rods.
It is recommended to replace the left and right side link rods at the same time. Your Lotus Excel will be noisy and will become harder to control on cornering when there is a problem with the link rod.
If left for too long, tyres can wear too and replacing tyres can be more expensive than replacing the link rod. Best to replace a link rod as soon as you can to make sure your Lotus Excel is handling well.
