My strut top bearings are shot, REALLY shot!
anyhow, the local motorfactors all want me to pay £60+ for a "bearing kit" apparently these contain the whole strut top mount ETC I need 2 (£120+) this seems a little steep to me!
anyhow, there are SEVERAL sellers on ebay that are selling just the bearing for around £18 (so for 2 £36) A HUGE saving, im sure will agree! anyhow, the mechanic i use for big jobs says that just the bearing wont work as the rubbers ETC will be shot too, a cursory google says he is wrong! the rubbers and mount are usually fine, and just get the bearing off the bay!
SOOOOOOOO thoughts please chaps! will I be ok with just a bearing, or will it need the whole mount, rubbers, bolts and bearing you get in the kit??
cheers chaps, from 1 confused bungle!
