    Whats peoples thoughts on ball joints?

    Going to do mine while fitting the rest of my set-up. I know karl bought some from ECP and they didnt fit correctly, they needed the wishbones filing down, dont fancy doing this plus you shouldnt have to.

    Audi seem a fortune, think its about £40 each side, thats just a rip off.

    But, what about these: AUDI S3 QUATTRO TT QUALITY LOWER FRONT BALL JOINTS NEW | eBay UK

    Seem a good price and look ok.

    I wouldn't expect any aftermarket non oe ones to fit perfectly, mine werent much of a pain, just a bit of filing, only took a few mins, and they seemed good quality to me.

    i just replaced my whole wishbone both sides £30 each from my local motor factors. have been on there over a year now and have had no problems. reason fo me replacing the whole lot as i no from personal exsperiance that as soon as 1 bush gets worn you can guarantee the rest will need doing shortly after

    Yeah slight difference in a3 and s3 wishbones though, as the s3s are cast units. I'd just go genuine

    Cant remember now Dani, Not a lot though.. Plus i got a good amount of trade discount.
    They were a good fit though, Took minutes to do with a jack and a few sockets.
