Check the cups though, I might have had a one off dodgy set but mine were cast badly and had loads of little pits on the surface. They sent out another set FOC and they were fine.

I'd suggest the Delphi Joints, they are better than the Mini Spares ones in a few ways.

“The question of stocking Delphi ball joint kits has been raised before, so to see if there was a quality improvement over the kit we stock, we ordered a set in. Nicely boxed, and as you would expect to see a kit. Upon opening however, it quickly became clear these are no different to the kits we have in stock, as these pictures show. They have the same kit labelling on the bag, and the same reference to batch codes. The main difference is they come with 2 extra lock tabs. We checked with our supplier of kits, and indeed they are the same. They add the extra tabs at the factory and then supply them to Delphi.”

Yeah, I am aware of the thread and discussion, however, while maybe coming from under the same roof, I've not found them the same, and to that, if you look at the contents of the two kits, the rubbers and spring washers (for a small, easy to see example) are different, so I'm none too sure how this is all coming about, but I've found the MS Joints not the same as Delphi
