Hi
I've got the upper ball joint to do on my t4. I got a price from my local dealer at £39 each for the upper ball joints including vat. Can any one suggest any other equivalent manufacturer of genuine part quality? I want something that's going to last but don't mind paying the price of the genuine part if that's the best. Cheers

I just did my lower one, £38 from vw, so sounds about right!
I think bushes/ ball joints u r best with original!

My votes for genuine too. Had cheap track rod ends fitted and they lasted 3k miles...

There are lots of cheap nasty parts out there but you dont need to go to vw. Lemforder make suspension components for may of the world leading manufacterers. If you specify you want this brand you will get OE quality but for about half the VW cost. Euro car parts usually stock this brand. Lemforder site is as below
