    Broken my front NS ARB! :( its snapped off at the mounting on the hub

    the other one is looking very dodgy too.

    I've been quoted £50 inc. parts to replace them both and unseize a seized tracking arm.. this sound good?

    Car = money pit :(

    Yep not a bad price. looking at £12 for each of the parts then labour. Seized track arms can be PITA to do yourself, took me 2 hours to take off a track rod end on the gti :(
