    Hi, I have really **** cheap wishbones and track rod ends on my car, I had to replace the ball joints this weekend as one had excessive play.
    Even fitting the better quality ball joints it felt so much better to turn and just driving in a straight line, would it be better to change the track rod end to better quality ones also?

    When I tightening up the bolt at the hub end I could feel the wishbone moving from a right to left movement, is this normal or are the bushes on these knackered? As I can feel the car wonder a little with the road cambers etc?

    I have ordered some polyurethane bushes for the front and also the rear bushes on the wishbone, will these be easy to fit myself? Or is it a garage job?

    Thanks simon
