Wishbone top mounts

I have decided to bite the bullet and have my front wishbones done despite only having them done 8 months ago. I am going to buy genuine this time. The garage says that I may have light wear in the top mounts. Has anybody else had the same problem? Also is it the upper or lower wishbones that knock, or both? I am hoping to have the top ones done first as they are a lot cheaper? Any thoughts?

Top wishbones tend to squeak, bottom ones knock. Ask them to put new long bolts in when they do the uppers for you. If these have worn, then you may still get a squeak once the new wishbones are put in.

Ball joint on upper and lower can knock also if the bolt through the top wishbone is worn can knock as well they are a little expensive but can buy them from EB SPARES .warn bushes as well will cause knocks. Alot of feed back on other threads say buy cheap replace twice or more.
try here for wishbones ,told that they are good quality.

HOPE THIS HELPS...................
