Title: Front Control Arms / Wishbones
Post by: TFG on November 09, 2020, 06:16:47 PM
Can anyone recommend a specific make of front control arm as replacements for a 2007 Alhambra? I'm looking at TRW, Spidan (which is GKN), SKF and Lemforder. I like Lemforder stuff, but in this instance they are quite a bit more expensive than the others. I've also found in the past when buying control arms for other cars that in some cases the bushes and joints on TRW ones are stamped with the Lemforder logo. They are owned by the same company.

Also worth knowing would be any specific brands to avoid for these arms!

Out of curiosity, does anyone have personal experience of Bilstein B6 dampers on these cars?

You canít go far wrong with trw parts,used them on several different cars and found to be good quality.
Avoid any of the cheaper/unheard of brands. Like the stuff you find on ECP. Starline etc
