:cry: :cry: :cry:
Been wondering over the past few days why my car seems to be handling very badly, and pulling itself all over the place. well first thoughts were the Diff which was only put in less than 3 months ago now.
just been under the car tonight to have a proper look. box looks fine, no oil leaks/holes.
it's looking more than likel to be the bottom arms. both main bushes are split, and balljoint boot has got a major gash in it. this is consistent on both sides, now either this is from when i took my car to have box changed, which is possible. or it's due to me being a tight arse and buying cheap bottom arms.
bearing in mind these were changed in january!
looks like its a trip to ford in the morning, or i might price up some fiesta frenzy ones, no more shagged bushes there.

just looked on ebay, 35 for the pair, and they're pretty local so could go and collect
i'm not bothered if they're cheap, at least they get it back to normal for now

Had the same problem, was wondering when someone said they saw the front of my car bouncing up and down when I pulled off. Thought I had hydraulics :lol:

See you've noticed but was gonna mention there are some on ebay.
