Re: 156 in for MOT pre test... Ideas?
Right, here is what it failed the pre test on:
NS lower ball joint worn
NS wheel bearing worn, slight play
Rear trailing arm bushes worn, hub end.
Rear transverse arm bushes worn (rearmost arm)
I asked him to check the ARB and he said it was fine. I guess the reason I couldn't pinpoint the knocking was that it was knocking at both ends!
So, I have ordered all the above (some powerflex) plus a complete set of new discs and pads (they weren't a fail but they were fairly worn).
About £330 from EB spares, now to get it all fitted...
Thanks for all the help.
