    Will people buy anything?

    Seen this on Ebay, please tell me this is a joke. Would someone really go to all the time to remove control arms to fit old ones again??

    I would have bought them about 12 months ago.
    The rubber fell out of my upper arms and was eating away at the cap and that was a wee before my 2 weeks driving holiday.
    Theses would have done for the weeks and then I could fit better ones.

    Going through through the faff on in getting them out only to find the ones you've put in are worse. Mental if you ask me.

    Well its fairly obivous before you start if the "new" ones are ok or knackered just by feel.

    And while its usually a hassle the first time, once everythings freed up its not that bad a job.

    Buying 2nd hand parts like these is a waste of time and money IMO, no garantee how old they are, how long they will last where as buying new (granted ALOT more money) but saves all the **** but that's just me. Will be nice to see what they bring.
