    hi guys, posted a few weeks ago regarding my lower balljoints failing. i am from south wales (Bridgend) and finding someone to replace these balljoints were a nightmare, my search took me as far as nottingham,derby,london. after being in contact with andy cochrane who is a great guy by the way i decided to source the part myself and my mechanic agreed he will take the job on. purchased the part from R-sport and you can contact them on 07990 520010 and the part number is 8200438088 but you can just ask for the lower balljoint and they will know what your talking about, they sell enough :smile: and their £44 plus the VAT. So today my car went into my local trusty mechanic who is a great mechanic called kelvin at Ktautomotive, they can be found on facebook, he specialises in european and american cars mostly but will take pretty much anything on and he charged £70 per side ( i supplied the balljoint myself) and the car feels bloody great. He had some trouble with the badly designed pinch bolt which he had to drill out and replaced with a bigger better bolt but aside from that he done a cracking job so thought id just let people in the south wales area if your ever in need of balljoints replacement and you dont wanna have to travel 100s of miles then check him out.

    cheers guys.
