    Just get the OEM replacements and it will be a night & day change. You will get a good handling car with no issues with comfort.

    Just to give you some idea of how many there are:

    Agree with this - recently changed my front wishbones entirely, so new ball joints, front and rear bushes. BIG difference in the car.

    I'd rather spend the evening swimming in a vat of mixed human and dog excrement, whilst being poked with sticks by Sloth from the Goonies, than be made to watch X Factor again.

    It was bearable when Katy Perry was on there.... :drool:

    :laugh: Links awsome! :yes:

    I have a slight klunk from the front near side when going over bumps and sometimes when turning.

    Going to replace the ARB Bushes as i believe this is the problem. Maybe i ought to look into doing the lot while im there!
