Default 156 Front Suspension Lower Wishbones

As I didn't get a reply I guess that you've taking yours to a garage. But it
doesn't look too difficult with one ball joint, one bolt through leg and
four more holding mounting onto crossmember. Copious amounts of WD40 going
on on Friday night!

Mine (should) arrive this week and I'm going to replace both uppers and
lowers at the same time. Bought from EB Spares at 62 each lower and 24
each upper. Add delivery and VAT.

Someone has suggested I should also change anti-roll bar drop links ... I'll
check those first.

I'll post any problems I encountered ......
