    control arms

    Hiya found this site just now and thought the only way im going to get rid of all the knocks on the front of my car is to go down this road
    http://www.allgermanparts.co.uk/ours...l-arm-set.html

    can any one tell me is this a good price or do you know of any where a bit cheaper

    Cheers gareth

    German ebay usually comes up trumps too, but i like to support the smaller independants whereever possible, so i'd be giving jason at allgerman a chance to match the price of german ebay.

    ^^ I baught a similar kit for similar money, it lasted about 4 months and cost me two front tyres...

    Ended up buying a Meyle kit, throwing all the arms i'd just fitted into the bin, and doing the whole job again.

    So by trying to save myself Ł200 in the first place, it end up costing me nearer 300quid more, and an extra day of my time.

    Got my top control arms from ebay (ebay name - TieRodPete something or other).
    Cost 35 delivered for both arms required to do the drivers side top.
    Knocking stopped, been OK for the last year or so.

    Took about 45 Mins to install as per the Haynes manual.

    Regards,
    Jim.
