Rear suspension on Adria Twin
Hello all, not been on here for a while, been too busy using the freedom machine.
After a bit of advice as usual, just had an MOT done on our 57 plate Adria and was told by tester that rear leaf springs are resting on the bump stops and should have failed MOT.
Googled the issue and on another forum a lengthy thread mirrored the issue. It went on to explain that Fiat call the "bump stops" "spring assisters" and the set up is designed to work that way.
Got underneath and sure enough there is absolutely no clearance between "spring assister" and axle.
Anybody have more information or thoughts/experiences.
