Hi Bobajobuk - go for the complete wisbones if you can afford it - it will a big difference to the steering etc., - remember you'll need to have the tracking checked afterwards or you'll end up scrrubbing the front tyres off - £70 a pair is a fairly good price for the wishbones and the price for the rear shockers isn't too bad either.

Hi the two inner rubber bushes on the front wishbones can be changed on the espace but only once and the front balljoint also you will know if the ball joint has been done before as it has cut out mark on the bottom i know all this because i priced it all last week for mine.The inner rubber bushes are around£15+vat balljoints£25+vat or a complete wishbone for £70+vat the first is cheepest but you will have to get all the old bits pressed out first and then the new pressed in i hope this helps Donald.
