On mine the rubber bushes between the arm and the brackets that bolt it to the subframe had lots of play in them.
However until they were taken off the car you couldn't tell by looking at them. It was only when they were off the car the play in the bushes became obvious.
I paid £80 all in for 2 arms. Not sure what thay would be in Austrailian dollars though.
They took me about 2 hours per side, taking my time as some of the bolts were seized.
If you haven't got reciepts for them being replaced in the last 40,000 miles or so then chances are they will be past their best.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
