What bushes are you doing in the front, control arms? If so for that price I'd get adjustable arms instead

Cheers

thanks guys.

dealer just said i need new bushes in the front AND a new drag link...huh?

if i get new arms, what can you recommend and what money am i looking at?

where's a decent Jeep mechanic in sydney that isn't going to rip me off?
somewhere close to the city or north shore, inner east or west would be ideal.
anyone??
