    as above, fitted new springs and shocks but my plastic sleeves were shagged ..........so want new but........searched ebay , tweeks, larkspeed etc and cant find any,any one know the correct term please.

    thanks Lee

    right guys thanks, now when you tighten up the top mount which retains the bearing cap...........do you really tighten (and I do mean tight) or just tight? if that makes sense, and do you know cost of bearings and part no's?

    thanks Andy
