That's still a good £400+ after labour (cheaper if you can do it yourself) plus allignment on top for a set of control arms, its hardly cheap is it (Well, its cheap for what it is, but it's not 'wow, this is so cheap to run'.

Had this done on mine recently too, if yours are on the way out then you will definitley notice the difference.
I got mine off ebay for £200 though. Labour cost me £160.

It is but I do not have the tools/knowledge or inclination to do it myself.

no, my point was that id expect it to all go ahead smoothly ie very little to go wrong with something like that

for a set of crucial parts which need replacing so infrequently and being replaced with meyle bits, i think its a really cheap fix, youll feel the difference

just need to think about the rear now unfortunately
