Hey guys,

it's been a while since I've posted as I've not had the van for 18 months. However now I do it appears the off-side upper and lower ball joints need replacing. Does anyone have an idea of a reasonalbe supplier and expected cost?

Also it looks like there is play in the prop shaft; front and rear and the diff is on it's way out. Look like I'm going to have to get shot of the van shortly. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

The diff probably is cheaply replaced from the wrecker and you could perhaps even get a prop shaft with unis as well. Front end well that may be a bit more expensive, beware of thinking ball joints as you may only have wheel bearing play which can be adjusted, mine was misdiagnosed. Pity you are in WA, you could get shot of it to me. If the rest of the van is OK why get rid of it

If the ball joints are bad then there not overly expensive, the $30 mark of the top of my head is about right and there not too hard to do with the right tools.
