    It's the lower control arm.

    Not too hard to replace but the ball joint can be a pain to shift.. a blow torch or heat gun is a big help.

    Not sure on the part number but a good quality one would be about £40 on it's own AFAIK.

    Front lower control arm.

    Not too difficult to do on your own, but helps if you've got a ramp.

    But yeah, £40 is about right.

    I think the only difference is the quality between the two hence the price difference. Must be two different manufacturers.

    I baught cheap ones last year, they lasted about 3 months, before wearing out so much they wrecked both front tyres. When i took them off, they were worse than the arms they'd replaced.

    Buy lemforder or Meyle, or you'll be back under there again in not much time at all.

    with the cheap ones it seems to be the ball joint that goes and you cant replace that. thats what went on my original audi ones too not the bushes.

    Get Lemforder(OEM) or Meyle heavy duty arms and you wont feel sorry. Also replace the droplinks with the genuine items as they dont have balljoints but bushes and they are lasting much longer.
