Hi Greg
I just need a bit more information on this. The advisement on the M.O.T. certificate was 'slight' play in the pin /bush nearside front/lower. You say replace if 'bad' but that's not what the MOT said it was. If, however, you still feel I need to replace, then what rough costs should I expect to pay?
Hi .
Okay this could be the lower ball joint if they said Pin , control are has a ball joint on one side and a bush on the other ,
Okay let me know which mazda you have to be sure and a copy of the MOT report if you can .

Report attached (I hope)
I just need to know how necessary this 'advisement' really is and the rough costs for the work involved.
Many thanks for your patience.

Hope this gets through O.K. Tried once already.
okay front links on the Anti roll bar need replacing always replace in pairs . The rear marked in red should be checked and replaced where needed ,as said this is a part that will cause tyre wear if not replaced and 4Wheel alignment not done after the work is carried out .With the cost you will have to work out with the repair shop as each shop has its own repair rate .work is around two hrs for the job list from the alignment ..
