Default Best place for ball joints?

Cars going in on monday to have both ball joints replaced but my man has quoted me at 85 for the part plus fitting saying they are OE quality and not the cheap crap that you can buy. The thing is whilst they are OE quality that seems a bit steep so im wondering if anyone can advise on cheaper but still decent alternatives?

This is also on my to do list.

Been looking around at prices as I'm going to do them myself, but I have heard some stories about cheaper ones and also garages not renewing the bolts. As in car going one way and wheels the other. I generally price up at europarts and gsf think I was quoted around 65-70ish. I've seen them on ebay for 25 seller is in York. Close enough to go and complain!!!!
But as I've usually got my kids in car it's one thing I aren't going to be tight about.

85 parts is basically buying them direct from Peugeot - they charge 90 each. If he isn't getting them direct from Peugeot, then he is paying far too much for other branded parts.

Yeah i thought it was too much too hence me asking about alternatives. Hard to tell but ive been under the car and both actually look ok with no rust as in Trems pics and i only get a slight knock from the OS but they have done 32k now. Maybe something else?

There was a guy on 407owners who bought some proper pug ones off ebay for 30 a side in Feb though that seller no longer seems to be around

I wouldn't just have them done because you think it might be them - get them checked by someone else first. I too have an intermittent knock from front O/S yet I've had it into Peugeot and all has been checked as OK and no play at all, incl. steering and all suspension, yet the knock is still there. I had ball joints done 10k miles ago, and they are still perfectly fine, yet still get this knock, so it doesn't have to be them that is causing you the problem.

OE quality is dreadful, so that's not much of an advert for the parts he's fitting.

Maybe telling you how to suck eggs, but watch that website - they don't include any VAT until the checkout!
