    What does an uprated drop link do different? or does it just last longer?

    I've bought suspension parts for various cars through Ebay. 2 of the sellers i've used are both within 15 miles of where I live & are actual proper car parts shops as apposed to soe guy with boxes of parts in his spare room or garage!!

    Also just actually bought a pair of rear shocks for my Vec from 1 of them!!

    Thats interesting, I was considering some that were 10 quid each of e bay, I emailed them to see how they could be so cheap, as all others were 30 each, they said they made them themselves. Are they the ones? I'll steer clear if so. Don't want to pay 70 quid a pop tho.
