I really get upset with spares places that "don't stock your spares" just because they don't have the book listins for your vehicle.I hope it adds to the existing list.

  • Brett: Hi guys, after a mechanic replaced the ball joints and completed regular service, including new front pads I took it for a test drive as the owner wanted my opinion.  The breaks felt very bad and the car was pulling, he has suggested new tie rods too but was unable to find any, I know where to get them now.  Long and short of it, the front right wheel seized up and i skidded for approximately 50 meters before ending up in the emergancy lane in the on coming lane!!!  I had to get the car towed as it had siezed so bad...what are your thoughts? Bearings or perhaps the break master cylinder jammed?? Thanks in advance.
