Maverik Posted July 23, 2010 Author Share Posted July 23, 2010 VERY TRUE! Partly true... but there are some quite expensive replacment parts going around. I've just spent about 400 squid on parts for front axle... decided to go with a BP swivel kit, which includes everything you need to re-build a swivel (excluding the ball) its mainly all the gaskets. The gaskets are branded gasket material and look ok. don;t like the look of the swivel lower bearing so got a Timkin replacment, other than that the upper bearing looks pretty good - better than the Allmakes one I pulled out of it. I also got a heap of high tensile 12 point bolts for peanuts from BP and they cost a fortune elsewhere, and they are exactly the same as any other 10.9 grade bolt. chuffed about that. I just think you have to be carfull with your choice of parts. If its dimensionally/safety critcal - thye you have to look about for a quality part. BP obviously are going for the cheap - but sell lots of scenario as aposed to the Ashcroft route that make bespoke parts that last a liftime which is reflected in the cost.
