There is standard and heavy duty. Standard duty is for Light Commercial Vehicles ‘LCV’ for standard requirements. Or there is heavy duty LCV vehicles. Both of which require the weight of the vehicle to be below 3.5 tonnes.

What other things do I need to be aware of?
A ball joint is a flexible joint linking the suspension arm to the vehicle wheel. Please note our products may not offer this, please refer to the product description to determine whether they include the ball joint.

Rear mounting bush is connected to the rear of the suspension arm. This is the part which will show signs of wearing indicating the need for replacement. If this occurs the whole wishbone/suspension arm must be replaced.

The suspension can deteriorate for either the front of the vehicle and the back. Please refer to the product description to determine what part of the vehicle the part is for. If you are replacing for example the front of the vehicle, we would recommend replacing both the passengers and drivers side for even wear. The same would apply to the rear.

Wishbones may be damaged by poor road conditions for example, driving on roads with bad pot holes.
