Mine even looks perculiar parked up ! this was confirmed by a colleague following me a while back , who asked me when we got to our destination , if I felt juddering as I drove because of how out of true my rear wheels seemed .
The crux of the matter is my tyres wear evenly and last for thousands of miles and the ride is comfy . Even at motorway speeds in excess of 62 mph nothing shakes like a shitting dog ! so I reckon she was built this way . Panic over unless you have just posted about uneven tyre wear :S

Our rear axle made a horrible knocking sound and the rear wheels tilted in some what. Not drastically, but still noticeable when following.

So we replaced it last week for, approx £600 labour at £50 p/h plus VAT plus £160 for the axle. Not a 5 minute job and would not attempt myself.

Other options were:

a) main dealer new axle - ~ £2k?
b) recon axle - £400
c) strip down old axle with no guarantee of fix
d) axle from scrappie and garage fit

We chose option d)

Seems ok although I was told by the garage the replacement axle is different and they had to swap the hubs round. And, I believe our 2007 (57) Berlingo is now an inch or so lower at the back.
