Oo, seconhand wishbones? that would be brave!

I got this little lot for my 156 (147 is the same) a while back, seems decent enough to be honest. I think if one wishbone is gone the bits in this kit wont be to far behind it, worth doing the lot in one go I reckon, would save in labour costs in the long run...

been getting loads of people telling me generally when one side goes the other will soon follow so i should get the 2 sides changed been getting quotes from 260-300 for the 2. but found a guy on ebay who sells upper and lower for both sides with the drop links for 150e all in or so.

so might go for that to be honest.

what you guys think?

To be honest, I wouldn't buy spurious parts when it comes to suspension.

+1 with Rob on that one.
Buy the cheapies, and you'll end up doing it twice. Cost you more in the long run.. :mygrin1:
