I have just had the rear axle replaced for my Skoda Roomster. This is how it looks now; another photo can be found below.
I have an impression that the rear suspension now looks different than it used to. I am not quite sure as I do not have any photos of the original situation, but I found a press photo from a decent angle, though from a bit far away.
My concern is that the spring seat (?; the thing that the spring rests on) is so low to the ground (I measured merely 10 centimetres) and is slant (not horizontal). Both sides look roughly symmetric; the left side that is in the photo is perhaps a bit more slant than the right side, but I could be wrong; I have not measured the angles. The suspension coming so low to the ground, I am afraid of hitting a stone all too easily when driving on a gravel road.
Q: Is that how it should be, or should I indeed be concerned?
Update: I have found here that ground clearance of Skoda Roomster is supposed to be 14 centimetres. I am not entirely sure whether spring seats count in measuring ground clearance (there is this question though). But if they do, then this seems to be an indication that the spring seats are indeed too low (by approximately 4 centimetres), in line with my visual perception.
