    Default Knocking from passenger side - drop links?

    Hi guys
    Got some knowkcing when going over uneven surfaces from the passenger side - looking around here it seems like its the drop links. Can anyone recommend anywhere to buy from and also what else might be worth changing at the same time? Anyone fancy fitting them for me???

    These any good:

    hi mate.

    does sound like drop links, not really much else to change at the same time that won't cost a fortune, like they say if it ain't broke don't try fixing it. just do the drop links.

    pretty easy job only 2 nuts off, 2 nuts back on and nothing else to remove to get to it either. other than the wheel.

    £7 not a bad price, could try ebay.

    good luck.

    If your drop link is shot then change the arb bushes at the same time , the suspension loading would of gone onto the arb,s so you might as well change them at the same time .
    again a relatively easy job just two bolts holding the clamp , have a look at the how 2 for instruction,s .

    The arb bushes can come in 3 different sizes depending on your axle weight best bet is put the car on full lock with the driver side front wheel pointing outwards , and with a torch you should be able to read the part no off the bush top edge looking at your engine info, ( 120 cdti )the bush part no should either end in 1311 or 1312 the 1311 are 24.8 mm and the 1312 are 25.2 .
    That is if they are original bushes if they have been changed recently then you could have bushes with the revised part no,s ie 25.2s are now 9191188. best way is just have a look for yourself. then you will know

    try halfrauds mate, I got a decent 2 ton trolley jack, axle stands, wheel chocks, a crawler and the jack handle doubles as a long bar with an angled socket for the wheel nuts, on ofer at the time for 39 quid, ftw

    Linky here, but still worth it at the current price

    Reserved it. now, what other tools do I need to do this job? Not got loads of £ to spend unfortunately either Might as well do this myself than pay a garage to do it really. Torque wrench's are crazy money too

    Don't worry about torque wrench just make sure there nice an tight.

    Think it's a 17mm spanner to hold the flats on back of ball joint. An 18mm socket to do the nuts.
