ok, so it seems it is the drivers side top ball joint, no real play but this is driving some vibration onto the arm. Colese, not sure why but I didn't buy TRW top bj,s only the bottom ones. The top ones are q-drive.

Looked for Festa and Tommo on here but couldn't find them. Any chance of a PM with some details or their names on the Kent page so I can track them down and see if they are interested in a bit of work.

Thanks
Sam

p.s how long is a ball joint replacement (approx.)

E14 8DG. Have underground parking ;-)

Deal works for me as well as usually it is in Folkestone, but I am only about on weekends. Mine also needs an outer CV gaitor. Really don't mind paying someone to do it. I have a place Ive been using to do other stuff, but they were supposed to have done the CV gaitor and only just seen it wasn't done. Not sure if I have been charged as waiting for them to get back to me.
