    Default Drop Link price

    Afternoon all,

    I've just being quoted £18.96 inc vat per side for the updated drop link, part no. 13237130. does this sound right; from what i have read on here people have said they are about 10 quid a side.

    Phil.

    i did my drop links and bushes a few months ago...the car felt much tighter, and got rid of scraping over speed bumps. Over time tho, the front seems to have loosened up again, and while the noise hasn't returned, at low speeds the front is rolling side to side a bit. Not sure if I'm imagining things or not. Could the new parts have worn out already? What exactly is the benefit of uprated droplinks? Do they control rolling more effectively? Or just last longer?
