just priced vw droplinlks
£43 each
Ebay much cheaper

I replaced mine when car was about 3 years old and 65.000 mls with parts from my local parts shop, can't remember the make it didn't seem significant at the time but still going strong with 120.000 mls was £20 each back then.

Now I remember why I was not going to crawl under
motors again. Aches and pains.
however financially much better off!

well worth doing,relatively easy job.
amazing the difference in noise. Only
one joint was well worn and rattling away noisily.

So do  not be scared of tackling this one DIY
