147 lower arm nightmare

I learned a valuable lesson this weekend that if you want some me time and carry out a few Alfa 147 repairs then BUY THE BEST - me unfortunately i bought a N/S lower (cheaper alternative) and in addition to seized lower fork suspension bolts etc etc the chassis fitting holes were actually 5mm difference to the original that's after a hole day of manipulation. Will be on the blower first thing to auto-lusso i think 2 new lowers and deffo ARB rubbers are required - well its all jacked up and the MRS accepts the car is off the road so may as well do it all & aliminate all knocks & taps ect, hopefully get the motor back on the road later this week
