Re: 156 Squeaky Wishbone Replacement
uppers do tend to go more often. inspect upper and lower and drop links, its fairly easy to spot where the most play is, and cracked rubber bushes are also easy enough to spot.
shop4parts is more expensive than your motorfactor, even with the discount. the wishbones on shop4parts are made by OCAP, not bad but not great either, i'd rather go to my motorfactor and get some QH branded wishbones for less money.
there was a good thread about OCAP on fiatforum a while ago but i cant find it, bascially OCAP lasted half as long as some other brands. the oem TRW branded wishbones seem to be the best, but they cost so much more it isnt the best option. that is why i would go for QH at your motorfactor.
i wonder how many people on AO still assume shop4parts supply oem gear, as their marketing material would lead you to believe. that is how they have justifed their higher prices in the past, but customer experience shows they do not supply oem parts.
