Play In 156 Front Anti-Roll Bar?
Does anybody know how much "sideways" movement is normal on the 156 front anti-roll bar? I am getting a clonk somewhere down in the pedal area over potholes, although with the front completely raised off the ground, I am able to slide the anti-roll bar sideways (out towards the drivers side wheel, and then back towards the passenger side wheel) by around 2 inches.
I'm 99.9% sure that's where my knock is coming from, and I would say that for a rollbar to move 2 inches laterally says that the bushes are shot - although they look to be OK!
I know changing this is a big job, unlike my Delta which took around 20minutes to fit a new anti-roll bar, but how much would I be looking at for a garage to fit one? I haven't done miuch research on this yet, although I can only assume that like the Delta, the rollbar is supplied as a whole new part with the bushes, as the bushes are unavailable as an individual replaceable part?
