    Default Rear Control Arms

    Its finally time for me to change the rear upper control arms!

    Found these on ebay...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VECTRA-C-REAR-...0#ht_694wt_702

    Anyone have any experience of these or should i purchase elsewhere?

    Any comments/help appreciated.

    iirc from vx they are about £50.00 + vat a piece mate, the £30.00 each ones would be a much better bet than the £30.00 a pairs ones imho
