well what a day ..... last year for the MOT it failed on ball joint rubbers... so they got swapped but the car never felt the same it would twitch when it hit a bump left and right .... so toady i had had enough i head a pair of genuine wishbones with 15k on them of my old coupé so i swapped both side and put some new drop links on ..... what a difference ... no more twitching handling is 1000% better ....so the morel of the story if your coupé jumps and twitches as its driven ..... change the wishbones and drop links

Good work thumb
Don't forget the Fiat wishbones are best! OE ones can make the situation worse too! As some are not moulded correctly i.e. non symmetrical. They may 100% cheaper, but Fiat are 100% better!

That's what I have planned for mine once they've worn out. Does anybody know if there's much difference between fresh rubber v poly bushed wishbones? Experiences........?
