    I just did my drop links and they cost me £20 for the pair from my local parts center (southern exhausts)
    LMF might be your best bet they sell rear suspension arms for £34.99 and they quoted me £12 i think for tie rod ends (forgot to ask them how much for track rod ends)

    Best to ring around check stealers as well as some times they can be a bit cheaper

    Angry Any `decent' or uprated drop links out there ?

    Average life of genuine Vx drop links is 14,000 miles on my gently driven 2005 Signum, although they start getting noisy at 12,000 - absolute c**p ! (The ones on my Mitsubishi are now at 120,000 miles ... ) Anyone know of better quality/more robust ones for the Vectra/Signum? My local motor factor does FAI ones but said they are unlikely to last any longer than the Vx ones.

    Nope although I'm suprised yours have only lasted 14k - on my vec they lasted 35k and were fine when I changed it, and on this signum they were fine at 35k when I changed them anyway...

    You'd be better off buying the cheap ones, apparently they're just as good
