Just thought some of you would appreciate this link.

Not seen many people running these but should be a good modification to reduce play in the steering!

They are easy to fit, just press them in and out. Took me about 3 minutes each side.

And yes it was a brilliant different. It eliminated about 80% of the play in the steering.

Did you fit them with the arms on the car or taken off?....they sound good though :)

Yeah I did, but I had the arms off anyway to be fair.

Not sure you'd manage it in-situ as you need a press ideally. Having said that, a G-clamp with a socket might do it (something like a 19mm looks about right size)

Just wondering on fitment...haynes says to use a new locking plate on the inner tie rod bolts and new nyloc nuts on the track rod ends.....is is 100% necessary?

Mate you are always meant to replace nyloc nuts once you
take them off.

usually the locking late will snap at one or more points, so if your that worried you should change it
