    Hi guys,

    Going to be changing the upper/lower control arms, track rod ends and associated bushes/droplinks in a few weeks time. I've been told Meyle offer the best quality products but wondering what else i should consider? Euro car parts do a make called Lemforder that are twice the price of the standard ones but never heard of them. There is also a German company on ebay that aren't bad on price and offer a decent warranty.

    Dont want to have to di this again any time soon so any advice or recommendations will be appreciated.

    Gav
    Meh....

    Just make sure that once they are fitted that they are torqued with the weight of the car on the ground mate, other wise the bushes won't be oriented correctly and they will wear prematurely!


    Despite the high cost of living, It remains popular!

    Never bullshit a bullshitter, they'll just bring you down to their level and trash you with experience!

    A mate of mine recently admitted that he was a brake fluid addict! When I quizzed him about it he insisted that he could stop any time.
