Why oh why ?????
The last owner of my car got the wishbones, antiroll bar bushes (front and rear) and other doo dahs done in August 2001. What I can't understand is why the front droplinks were'nt changed. They only cost £10 each and the suspension was apart anyway. Having changed one recently that had snapped in two, I find the other side has no rubber left on the roll bar loop bit. Everything else looks in great shape, I'm totally amazed that the cheapest parts were neglected :confused:

I guess some people just change components
out of necessity.
And don't think about the future,and
that maybe while one part is being replaced
then it would be worthwhile to replace
related components.
Its false economy,Don't replace it because
it saves money at the time,to find out that
6 mths down the line it needs changing,either
costing more in labour to fix or just more
aggro for you because you have to take a load
of components off again.

My motto has always been, if it ain't broke
don't fix it.
The only exception to this is if it will save
me or my wallet more hassle in the future.

Sure I can understand that but the guy got the whole suspension overhauled except for the droplinks. They are in a very bad way and look like they've never been changed.

The bits that attach the front anti-roll bar to the wishbones.

Or, how's this.......

Die Spitzen, die den vorderen schlingerfesten Stab zu den Querlenkern anbringen.

Thanks Marlon,

the translation was not really german, but I know what it is now and had a good laugh.

schlingerfester stab (in fact it's "Querstabilisator"), if translated back to English, would mean something like staggerfast rod.

I really adore those translation programs...
