GTV 2.0 JTS

Rear upper suspension arms

Well... Given the amount of work I had done replacing springs, bumpstops cups and shox ... I'm a bit surprised no one spotted the source of the rattle until my local garage put the GTV through its MOT!
So... I wonder if anyone can give me a ball park figure for how much it might cost to replace the afore mentioned.. And if there's a 'while you are at it' option such as anti-roll bar bushes?...
I've seen the arms for 205 each from Alfa Workshop... But wonder how much to expect for fitting?... Does it involve any sort of geometry set up once done?

Cheers in advance

Whats gone on the arms? Either bushes (powerflex) or the ball joint can be bought on their own rather than a whole new arm to save a bit if possible. Can't remember how much of a job it would be to do them,as i did mine when i replaced the subframe

... Hmm... That's a point, I'd forgotten about that ball joint and, in fact it may be the culprit... Will get it looked into... Thanks for the pointer...??

Agreed. The rubber bushes can perish a little but I've never seen one fall apart. The Partsworld ones seem good value if you were going to get yours sand blasted and repainted.
