i took the wheel off again, and pushed/pulled on the hub and it seems tight, doesnt move towards or away from the other rear wheel. the bolt seems to be in place as well.
i guess its something actually in the axle? is there any way to grease the parts rather than replacing the whole thing? i sprayed a bunch of DW40 on that joint and was able to drive 5min away from the house to run an errand without the screech , but im sure WD40 wont last long on there...

I think you need to remove the axle to see what's up. Take a look at the link to see if you want to do it yourself or get someone else to do it for you.

and I wanted to renew it with plastic ones .... but indy refuses as they
dont look same ....

but vstech stated that they are expected to be different
as new part is nothing like the old one....


cheers

"Settlement without permission" - now that sounds a bit viking!

If it turns out that you've got the anti-squat then I'd agree with your indy... take a look at this thread to determine what is already fitted =>

http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/diesel-discussion/289638-w123-w126-trailing-arm-compatibility-question.html

Essentially the aluminium trailing arms look like this from the underside of the car


They've got that kind of webbed under surface - whereas the steel version (which isn't anti-squat) is all solid.

your pics clearly show the standard steel trailing arms... just put the plastic ones on.
