yeah that's a direct translation but if you Google Spider joint, you get a universal joint which you can see from Biltema site this isn't...

What car and model is it?

When I needed to replace the "spinndelled" on my Saab the part in England was called a "STABILISER ANTI ROLL BAR LINK". On other cars it may be something else,

Anti-Roll Bar / Sway Bar / Stabilizer... it's all the same thing. Sometimes the ARB can be fixed rather than replaced as it is usually just a bushing that has worn. Dealerships will replace as a matter of course. Back yard mechanics may repair if you can source the part.

It can be an easy fix yourself if you are mechanically minded.

Edit: ARB links and bushes are very cheap to buy in from England, try ebay.co.uk

totally agree, the bars rarely break, there are heavy duty rubber mounts on either end, which go into the suspension arm. They wear out, she might of notice a noise when she cornered particuarly tightly in one direction or the other.

If you get the weight off that side you can easily replace them yourself.

Sometimes the bolt or ball joint at the end, screws into / on the ARB, so still you don't need to replace the whole thing, even if it's not just the rubbers. 30mins work, for a decent mechanic, 1hr if some parts are stubborn to remove.

if its ARB that's easy... fingers crossed that's what it is...160kph its a Peugeot 206, 2000 model... when you look on biltema it looks like a ball joint or a CV joint (i hope not) easy enough if you have a work shop, tools, Vice, etc... I've been here 6 weeks and have nothing sad.gif

a joint separater would not cost too much, but obviously you'll still need other tools.

While you are at it, check the opposite side too. Often, if one side is failing, then the other won't be far behind, having covered the same distance, and dealing with both at the same time is cheaper than first one - then the other. Just a thought. cool.gif
