2.5 V6 Front Suspension

Hi guys,

Im after another spot of info please.

The old V6 has developed a creaking noise from the front end. Im reliably informed its to do with top and bottom suspension thingies.

My local garage has quoted me 500 to do both sides top and bottom and geometry.


1. Am i being ripped off?
2. Can it be done anywhere cheaper in the south of England. (Salisbury)
3. Is it cheaper to buy the parts myself then get it done?

Thanks for the help.

You can get all four arms for around £200 (plus vat and delivery).

A competent mechanic could do this. Change the anti-roll bars droplinks as well as these will be shot and really need to come off to change the lower arm (obstructs the rear mounting).
