Someone here told me where I could get these at a sensible price a good while ago, and I've lost the location... redface.gif

Does anyone know where they can be bought from without it costing silly money?

For a MY96 UK turbo.

Thanks

They are the same for all models roight thru from early legacy turbo to around MY00.

Maybe not totally sound advice, but have you considered second hand ?? I havent seen too many worn out yet.

Hopefully i know which bit your are talking about.... is it the ball joint that bolts to the bottom of the hub and sits in the lower arm?

If so when i took my hub off to do the wheel bearings i managed to damage the rubber gator around the ball joint. So when i went to the dealer to pick up a new axle nut i enquired about the price of a new ball joint (they didn't sell the gator seperately :( )... 40 all in. Not that expensive. What price have you been quoted?

We are talking about the same part. smile.gif

I haven't asked a dealer for a price yet. I was hoping it could be acquired for 20 or less. I wish I remembered more about what I was told before...

I'm not 100% sure it's this that is worn out, but if I investigate it, I'm sure that I'll end up braking something!

Yep 25... they also do wheel bearings which is where i got mine from (40). Delivery was next day too. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
