hi everyone, i have had several cars but never changed the drop links on any of them.

my merc has covered 190,000 miles and is on it's third set. ?

what kind of mileage can i expect from a set of drop links ? normal driving.

also if the front shocks were getting tired how would this show itself ?

basically i am getting a slight knocking on the small bumpy bits of road, on large bumps and undulations no problem.

car stability, especially on motorways etc. is superb.

car passed mot two months back, no problem.

any info much appreciated. herbiemercman.
