Re: Help Wishbones

I put new wishbones on my GTV last week, i would recommend new wishbones as your bushes have gone its more than likely your ball joint is a bit worn as well? There so cheap and easy to do, i got my pair of ebay for 65.

Re: Help Wishbones

Yep new wishbones are dirt cheap and relatively easy to fit by the looks of things. I was lucky to pick up a pair for £41 last week. Looking at the amopunt of work required to fit them, if you arent able to DIY any decent independent should be able to do them without the labour bill being astronomical.

eBay is the place to go for them I reckon.
