Lucky :shock: ... someone looking out for you ... reminds me of years ago when a brake line ruptured on my Integra while in stop-go traffic, 10 Min's earlier If it happened i was a goner :shock:

In fairness Nick's prices for genuine OEM parts compared to "dodgy" eBay parts isn't worth the gamble...

nivek wrote:first of all. Been to the ring in her already. All went fine. As for parts off nick i got all new bushes off him and fitted 3 days ago. Ordering upper arms and track rod ends off him now. As for checkin ball joints, i check my cars suspension every month. Had car on lift 3 weeks ago and there was no play or knocks in heavy duty ball joint. I would recommend changin them if you currenty have them even if the APPEAR fine. They were the only cheap part i put in car in two years and the only one 2 fail and 2 fail without warning. I was just aboot 2 take her for a nice rip!! Tank fu.k it happened wen it did



My car is currently sitting in the shop with a broken mount for the control arm balljoint.

Unfortunately, my car is stranded and the guys have to check on Monday if and how they can get the part. I have a feeling this can end up being expensive, so in the meantime I'm trying to figure out what this should cost so that I can decide what to do about the situation. So what I'm wondering is this: What is the proper name for the part that the mount for the ball joint sits on. Is this the spindle? A parts number or any links to where I can buy this would also be awesome. If anyone has any idea of what the part and/or labor should cost that would be great too.

Thanks!
