    Default wishbones

    anybody changed the front lower control arms before? (think these are also called wisbones) if so did they have to have wheel alignment done or is it just straight swap and job done???

    i want to change rear upper arms and front lowers as i have a little bit of a rattle plus they were advisory's las MOT. got a quote from garage out of interest, garage quoted me 500+ for supply and fit eeejits.

    seen below on Ebay, what is the general feeling about parts off ebay??? anybody bought these types of parts and are they good quality?
