Title: So it was MOT time...
Post by: KingyMAK on June 23, 2019, 09:31:20 AM
After what felt like a disasterous MOT last year, with:

Front and rear pads & discs
Front near calliper replacement
All new brake lines front and back
Inner CV joint Nearside + boot
Nearside front suspension component mounting rot
(As we all suffer, so PLENTY welding needed...)

Getting it all sorted was a pretty penny or 2.

So this year, I dreaded it just a little bit;

It failed on a:
cv boot

Motifyingly enough, I got an advisory on:
A ball joint, slight oil leak (from a Ďlooseí sump plug)
Worn arm pin or bush

I got the garage to chuck a boot on for me, so Iím setting myself off for a full front end refresh (excluding springs, damper & top mount).
What brands are particularly good these days, as Iíve not followed stuff as often as I used to, and havenít posted much in here as I once did.
Iíve saw the daft kits on eBay that have everything in from wishbones, arbs, tie rods, ball joints and all pins, bolts and bushes, but quality wouldnít be amazing Iíd assume (although I did buy a set for an old A4 B6 for a full front end arm set for £100 & it saw over 2 years before selling to my cousin, who had it for a further near-on 2 years without any issues, too!).

AUTODOC any good for parts? They seem very cheap, but read a few things about longer delivery.
