    Awesome thread! Just about to refresh all my steering/suspension parts . . . its never been right since I owned it.

    So all available except from the inner tie rods where no option but to buy from Renault.

    Are there any updates in terms of rebuilding the wishbones i.e. aftermarket bushes?

    Can someone post a link to the ball joints as the eurocarparts one in the thread above doesn't work.

    Or have we found anywhere that supplies the correct OEM whole wishbone?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    Must be a mistake AFAIK the setup on the Megane doesn't allow camber adjustment via bolts?

    Actually they might be for the non RS Megane

    I'm also interested in this . . . or other sources to buy reasonably priced OEM or aftermarket top mounts?

    Are you just changing the fronts or doing something with the rear as well?

    Ok cool . . . I'm just trying to eliminate some knocking/creaking noises which have been around for a WHILE . . .

    Suspect it could be the front drivers side top mount so just replacing that and the other side first.

    Let us know on the cost of the OEM ones.

    Cheers.

    Looking at refreshing my own 225 - she's an 08 with 168k KM on the clock.

    Based on the thread,

    L&R track rod
    2*link stabilizers
    2*control arm bushes
    2*ball joints (from other thread)

    and i'll get 2 hub bearings separately.

    Anything I've missed or should do if I'm doing the above?

    Looks good to me.

    I wouldn't buy the shock absorbers from them, they're about the same money from Renault.

    I thought the lower (track control) arms were not suitable for the 225/R26 and only normal Megs as they are missing certain bits? Check earlier on in the thread . . .

    Most people it seems rebuild their original arms with new ball joints and bushes, more info. on this earlier on in the thread also.

    I ended up ordering top mounts from Renault as I read a few stories of alternative manufactured parts failing after a short while (not sure which though).

    The shocks from Renault are about £50 each so those are cheaper but whether KYB replacements are any good I'm not sure.

    do these parts all fit a r26 or just a 225?

    I know when I put my reg into the parts section for say the link stabilizer it shows a few one with normal suspension and one with sports and then the one linked?

    just want to check before I order anything

    thanks in advance

    I ordered the TRW twist links and ball joints using these part numbers and they definitely fit.
