    Did you get the entire trailing arm or just the rear spindles?

    Hey, got your message- sorry.

    Swap the whole trailing arm, leave all the control/compensator arms in place. Torque according to service manual, get alignment. Use donor car brake lines and e-brake cables. That's it.

    Look at the hubs on both cars, if one of them looks corroded then go full trailing arm swap. The CX was pretty good about bolts not being seized when I worked on it, but that was 7 years ago. The real problem with just swapping hubs is that if a bolt breaks, you're fucked.

    Swapping the hubs isn't fun. Did that on my old coupe and almost all of the bolts broke. Had to drill them out and tap them

    Hubs or spindles? On mine the hubs unbolt from the rear spindles and it's easy to get them off with an impact gun.

    Does somebody have a picture. Reason I ask is I plan on rear disc's some day on my '91 hatchback.

    I did the full kit on mine - everything. Even shift linkage, and front tranny mount. The other 3 tranny/enmgine mounts were replaced with Drop Engineering Polyurethane filled mounts.
