    Question How often should drop links be changed?

    Hi there,

    I replaced my drop links about 7 months ago but I've been having trouble here: http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75939 and I'm beginning to think it might be the drop links as I've almost eliminated everything else bar the brakes.

    So, how long till new drop links are needed? Should they have gone in just 7 months?

    All depends on driving conditions mate!
    if ya bouncing over speed bumps/kerbs/pot holes at 10000mph then yerh.. i can see them needing changing soon!

    but 7months does sound pretty short life for link bushes!
