Re: mot fail

Yes that's the balljoint
I needed one last year and went for the cheapest on ebay , it came with new, but smaller, bolts, a size smaller than my originals, I drilled out the holes and used the original bolts.
This year that same balljoint failed the MOT, worn, after maybe 5000 miles, I notice now some ebay sellers are describing their balljoint as 'quality' so I went for one of those, did at least come with the right bolts!

Oh and welcome to the forum!
