Hi everyone

Hi and welcome to the club

The lower arms are very common for going.

Genuine Ford are the better ones unless you spend a lot of money.

These are on eBay cheap, with 12 month warentee and 12000 miles warentee.

This is the only way to go,any bottom arm you purchase will fail between 12 to 24 months.

these are fitted to my track Mk6 Escort and also have an adjustable camber on the outer connection if you need it.
