Good Deal or Not...

Thinking of replacing my front suspension, ie both wisbones, both drop links, both upper arms for a 2005 2.4 JTDm. Online company have informed me for the complete package would cost 180.00 delivered. I requested who is it made by and the reply came back as Lucas Quintin Hazel. Is this a good deal or not??

I have been quoted 120.00 to fit, that includes tracking of the front wheels on completion.

Re: Good Deal or Not...

Lower arms are usually around 75-80 each, uppers 35, drop links 17.
So the package would be good if the quality is as it sounds.

Assuming the old arms and drop links come off, the uppers and droplinks are around an hour a side ... the lowers can mean the hub nut or lower strut fork has to be removed and can take several! Trying to get the arm back without can result in cross-threading the mountings ...

Also Lucas and QH are two separate companies ... Lucas don't make suspension parts ...
