Does anyone have one of these that they'll let go cheap? In disassembling my rear suspension, I find that my trunnion arm only has one... and I suspect that I'm supposed to have one on each side :(

Thanks!

Hallo,
pay attention, the use of one at every side is not forced and depends on chassis/ alignement of rear axles!!! There are cars , who need 1 ,2 or 4 !!! To put them right or left , depends of the stand of the rear axle! Please advertise your local specialist.

Thank you Uli -

I didn't know that. The CarDisc shop manual I have is silent of the subject, and my car has an unknown history with some work done on the rear suspension.

So, I made an assumption that there would automatically be two of them.

You have saved me a lot of trouble I suspect. I will still get a second one, but if it doesn't go in easily, I won't force it!

Thank you again!

you have to take measurements first of what exactly washer you need , alfa used 4 types 1.5mm-3mm. If you need for example 2mm in one side and you fit one 3mm , yes you will have a problem. In your copy shown before there is also a special washer (S) it is a washer which also must fit after taking measurements as manuals prompt. Alfa also supplied these S washers in difference thickness. I might have some NOS of these S washers and maybe also some of the triangle type to body washers. Need to check

I have these two. One is .101" and the other is .082" thick. $10 for the pair if you want them.
