Re: rear tracking arms price

The arms aren't that expensive but to fit them you need the entire rear suspension frame dropping and the rear suspension pretty much dismantling at the hubs. It`s a bigish job but can be done by someone competent in 2-3 hours. I`d say it was a fair enough price.

Make sure you have a quote, not an estimate. Sometimes the main hub bolts can seize into place and the job mushrooms into a much bigger one.

You must get a 4 wheel geometry realignment after such a big job.

By the way, its an ideal time to replace rear springs and shocks

Re: rear tracking arms price

Is that £300 inc labour or just for the parts?
