147 top suspension replace

Hi just about to replace my top suspension pivot but before I do I have a couple of question that I hope folk will be experienced with.

1, the new part where is the best place to buy one where quality counts. What I mean by this is I can get both sides of ebay for a reasonable price but what I don't want to do is be replacing them again in 12 months.

2, Looked at the info for replacing them and I am thinking that yes cut of the old bolts and replace with new fitted from the opposite end to aid future replacment but will it knock the geometry out by lowering the strut? Thinking I can do this and re-use the old bolt but fitting from the other end.

Thanks all
