Re: Problems with non-OE upper wishbones?
Hi David. No, there is no datemark that I can see. the serial no. is 16848 and then it just says R/DX, meaning RHS of course. The other one is still on the car and has to come off. The 'bones came from a well known supplier that I have used before.
Certainly there was no question of the rubber having 'perished in storage' or summat, the rubber is smooth and new-looking. It has either split or come away at the wider, balljoint end, where the retaining wire is. Maybe the wire was put on too tight and pinched the rubber or the rubber just split at this point?
