Could be the wheel bearing thats knackered. Does the wheel make any kind of noise when you spin it when its in the air?

My sound like a daft question, but have you checked the nuts on the wheel for tightness?

Have the rear brakes been touched recently?
Is the hub nut corectly torqued?

Wheel bearing is easy to get at.

just taken the rear hub of and the bearing looks fine but when you wobble the suspension it moves side to side so it looks like its the rear axle has gone.so looks like a expensive bill coming up,  Sad

Do you mean the rear torsion bar bearing (its a plain phosher bronz bearing).

There are companies that re:manufacture, you can buy the bearing but the replacement job is a nightmare, or purchase a second hand axle (I do this method).

Well my advice to be honest is dont.

They are not easy to do.

If you have MSN i'll send you some photos of what the bearings look like and whats inside.

I've gone to just replacing the axle as the time involved is not worth it to the customer.
