Too rusty?

Hey folks,

away offshore tomoro so thought i'd get the hubs stripped off my trailer, and bearings out so that I can get new ones ordered if necessary in time for me coming home! What do you think?

A) Is my suspension f*cked - or should the rubber be poking out like that? Also the arm is mega rusted!
B) Are my brake shoes ok, or should i replace them for the springs etc
C) Do i need new drums? If i measure the i/d of the drum where do you recommend i order from, if new ones are necessary? I notice the studs have fallen out, and it looks as though they should be tack-welded, so may have to replace anyway!!

Parts are currently in the dishwasher, hope the mrs doesnt leave work early.

Roll on the better weather!!

Thanks a lot!

Si

I have had worse in the past I would strip down & grease all the moving parts (not the break shoes!)
Check bearing the bolts in the hubs are not bolted in from my experience just push back in, you could knock off the rust & coat in Hammerite paint & looking ay this your brake cables may have sized up too!

I think if it's coming out, you're heading for suspension failure.

was worried that was going to be the case!! Having a look on the indespension website, all their suspension Kits seem to be one unit for either side. However, my trailer has one solid axle, with the swing arms on both ends. So its the single complete unit i would require! Any idea where i get these? I have emailed indespension, so should hopefully hear back from them before the weekend.
