    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : M-Sport

    Engine : 2.5l Straight 6


    Default Staffs + Droplinks

    Well as the title says my car has a horrible graunching noise coming from the front and have been told to change the droplinks. Now ive had a quick look on ebay and have found a couple of different ones but is there any difference in quality between them or are they all much the same just more expensive?
    Heres the ones i found:
    Cheap ones
    More expensive
    Most expensive

    And lastly of all... Is there anyone in and around Staffs that would be willing to lend a driveway and tools to give me a hand fitting them? I might even throw in a mcd's for lunch for lunch if your lucky

    Find a mate with Vauxhall Trade Club membership....the price of the most expensive on your list of three above is what I paid at the Vx dealer, using Vx TC.

    I had mine replaced under a non-Vauxhall warranty, and non-OEM parts were fitted. 12,000 miles later they were making a noise again, so that's why I've fitted genuine Vauxhall ones this time.

    ARB bushes....makes sense to do them at the same time as you have to undo one of the two drop link bolts to do the bush anyway.

    Yes, but even they say they can't tell what size bushes you have on your car already unless you read the part number off them, but as they're cheap it's worth buying both sizes and then returning the size you didn't need; but also bear in mind that lower powered Vecs with non-sports suspension won't have the larger size ARB, so that narrows it down a bit.
