    Hi, just had an MOT fail on my RV and I need some chassis parts.
    Anyone know of a UK supplier so that I can get them quicker than shipping from US.

    Ford E350 Coachman 1996
    Front Upper & Lower Ball Joints, off side and near side.

    Thanks, Mitch

    A quick google throws nothing up but i think you will find it a lot cheaper to buy these parts from a supplier in the US, even after postage and any import charges.

    Cheers Peter.....I shall remember you in my will :roflmto:

    Its a shame you didn't mention this last week Mitch, I could have done something for you but my shipment left the States yesterday.

    You could try contacting Dave Evans at Dave's Motorhome services in Cannock - 07968 429111. He may be able to help.
