Had the car serviced and MoT'd today (as mentioned elsewhere!) and it passed.

However, the anti-roll bar links are on the way out (the anti-roll bar can be moved sideways, which I've read about on here :L ).

He's quoted me about £50 labour, but didn't have to hand the prices for the parts (5pm, other people collecting cars etc.)

He says he only uses genuine Ford links, which is fine by me, but does anyone have any idea of the likely cost?

Hopefully, once I get them done that will be the end of the bloody knocking noise!

Small socket set and a few screw drivers! :D

And a lack of confidence to boot!

Got a mate whose a bit handy with the spanners - he needs to be with a 1959 Morris Minor and a 1961 Rover P4 as everyday cars!

I'll have a word - got to be worth a :beer:

£12 each from a motor factors m8, half hour job, wheel off and a 15mm socket and 17mm spanner is all you need.

Just looked it up in the Haines manual. Looks easy enough. Just need to pluck up the courage....

I'd give the nuts a good soak in wd40 the night before if you try it. if they've been on a while they will be pretty rusty.

Also when you jack up the car dont be tempted to use two of the crappy Ford jacks. It is not stable! :whistling:

not sure on socket size i think it might be 15mm before you undo the nuts put on some wd40 you might need a 17mm spanner close to the rubber at the back to hold the ball joint to stop it spinning, also they can be quite stiff just keep checking the nuts for heat as your undoing them specially if theyre stiff reason i say this is because they may snap but dont be alarmed after all it will make things easyer you wont need to undo so much :} all this into account it should be a 30-60 min job.

it alright for garages they can fly them off with an air gun but it still is an easy job.

Happy birthday by the way :L
