rattly old bugger

my 129k mile 156 jtd 'wagon is starting to sound like a 300k mile peugeot.
i need to replace a whole shed load of front suspension bits and a wheel bearing. does anyone have an off-the-top-of-their-head figure ? to replace drop links, wishbone bushes, ball joints, track rod ends, and is it possible to get all of this stuff, mail order, from one place?
is there a difinitive answer to the question of a replacement MAF.
ive asked this before and all sources suggested were either the same price or more than the stealer, i need a new one NOW

In 10 months of ownership;
uprated shocks and springs,4 fr wishbones,2 fr drop links,1 fr wheel brng,2 rr drop links,1 maf,1 uprated clutch,all belts and tensioners,rr discs and pads,1 thermostat,1 battery,2 tyres,mobil 1 oil (destroyed after 10k)

worth every penny

Re: rattly old bugger

I've just been looking for my "new" beasty as it's got a bag of old bones up front!

www.shop4parts.com list most of it, I'm only looking at the upper and lower wishys plus drop links but the bill is near to £300

You could also try EB spares.

Another reccomendation for Alfashop, they have original parts and are a shed load cheaper than dealers. also great advise, and loads of patience.
