    confused New Drop Links? Feels different Car!

    Would fitting new drop links make the car feel different?

    Fitted 2 new links and the car dos'nt pull to the left any more and feels firmer altogether! Feels like different front end.

    Hands off, straight as a die.

    Very spooky.

    Yep, it will do as you're not getting any undue movement in the joints due to wear. I felt the difference when I changed mine recently.

    Not a difficult job to change them either.

    I can tell you what is a difficult job to do. That is to change the bush,s on the rear radius arms on a Vectra B. Any one who has done these will agree with me.
