    Question Track Rod arms/ends

    On summary after service it states slight play in n/s and o/s track arms and ends and also slight cracking in rear anti roll bar collars no play.
    Is this a stealer on the earn or should I get it checked???
    I would expect a little bit of play after nearly 8 years and 62,000 miles.
    OH and for a laugh 490 inc for work!!

    I'd say you've been lucky to not have changed them before now, I think the track rods / ends are almost consumable bits if driven hard.

    OK, Not a job for the stealers though either?! How much are the parts??
    Got a mate who can do the work just got to get a 4 wheel done afterwards.

    i fitted a R32 one as they don`t have the sleves as they are thicker, and it still looks oem. I have a std one sat in the garage. I would fit either R32 or after market one if I were you think R32 ones are about £100 ish. I got mine secondhand off a guy who was modding his new R32.
