    Default rear upper control arms!! vxl or ebay?

    So, now i`ve found that the upper control arm bushes are are completely u/s, after looking at the cost from v/hall £60ish each or £35 from ebay for a pair, does anyone know if the latter are ok or not worth touching. the clunk from the rear is well loud and when i did the test of rocking the wheel from the top oh dear no doubt as to the cause, so are the cheaper ones ok or a waste of money & time fitting them? thanks keith.

    depends on the make of the cheaper one's to be honest.. i buy and fit 'delphi' patterns ( the same as VX's as THEY make em) at £38 a side..the VX one's are a rippoff...

    have you tried LMF?.. they sell quality rear arms at good prices..

    Got mine from lmf for £35 a side as well and they are still going strong. Definatly worth the saving over VX parts. Watch out for getting your spanner stuck on the inner nut and at the same time the spanner holding the nut hitting the rigid brake line.
    The guide on the forum is well worth a read.
