Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

obviously they've seen the price of new arms... :(

might just be due to low stock, as someone cleared them out... :whistling: lol

it seems normal for sellers to change the price on some listings when they have gone out of stock ( had a couple of batteries for my camera on watch & took one off when it went from 4.50 delivered upto 124.50 delivered :whistling:

also seem the same with a couple of £2.50 delivered phone holders where they have gone upto 92.50 delivered & such for a few days before going back to normal when i assume the actual stock arrived :} - i just wish the seller of my HID kit had done the same thing really as he has caused all sorts of troubles for me by leaving his listings live & at the cheap price when he had no stock, 2 days later i got a message to say he was sorry but he was awaiting stock from the warehouse etc & would i like a refund etc - as i was in a hurry but a good mood i tried my luck & said i was willing to wait 1 week extra as i really needed the kit to fix my broken headlight & the shipping delay was gunan be bad enough as it is ( from china the slow way :} ) but he came good & 2 days after my 1 week deadline the kit was at my door as he had given me a freebie upgrade on the postage which was very nice of him ( OK it was only a $2 upgrade but well worth it if you as me :D )

I was told on my last visit that the rear bushes have "gone" , however the car drives well and theres no knocking.

Do these bushes have to be bought with the arm , do you need a press to replace the bushes? Would you tackle this yourself? which of the bushes "go" ?

You guys are right re the low stock, he only got 2 pairs in and sold to me and a local man within hours of receiving them. The local ones to him have already been fitted and worked fine (trying to find out more info)
Mine are on the way, I see there is a uk seller now too but he is charging £85 each or £155 for the pair!!! Hopefully my £47 for the pair is a bargain!

Are we talking about the rear trailing arm bushes that had to be bought from the dealers at about £150 (complete arm) for each side. I still need mine doing ????

Yes they are the ones, I am half way through changing one of mine, having to rig something to get the bush in so will report when I have got it in :)
