Me again
The story so far......

Restored my front wishbones with superflex bushes (easier than i expected) Now found out that i cant buy new ball joint boots from anywhere and mine have suffered slight damage during removal.

Does anyone have any old wishbones (perhaps after replacing them) with any undamaged boots that they would donate if i pay the postage
:( :cool:

Bugger!

I changed a set only 2 months ago m8, but the old one's went in the skip :(

Bad timing I guess, otherwise I would have donated.

If the cut is small, try cleaning the mating surfaces with solvent and a cotton bud to remove all grease and then glue with a tiny drop of decent 'superglue'.

Is Alfaman the one who sells the wishbone with new hard poly bushes already on? I rang him to ask for prices of poly bushes and he talked down to me telling me i would not be able to change the bushes myself. He doesnt know me or what i can do yet he told me what he thought i couldnt do. The cheek of the fella, i hung up and bought from powerflex and i was well impressed with the kit and how well they went on.

I am actually a designer and DT teacher with a great workshop at my disposal (lathes, millers, sand casting, powder coating etc), so there isnt much i cant do. Arrogant patronising to$%er!! :mad:

Alfaman sells the wishys already made up with the powerflex - he might not be kene to get rid of the wishys he has for the job ;) ;)

EDIT - just read your above post - I thought he was a nice fella but hes obviously got some sales banta inside of him :eek:
