What's The Difference ?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I was looking on fleabay for a top strut bearing for my front o/s shocker & I came across these listings,

They are from the same seller, (who has a large & good rating.)

They are both quoted as QAM 148 (or equivalent ?) & I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they are the same product ?

I will contact the seller if I can't get an answer but I'm afraid he'll say he's made a mistake & charge me the dearer price ?( plus he may only reply on week days.)

Could the difference simply be just the make ?

Another thing is he offers freepost on one & the other (more expensive one) £5.99 postage.

Am I just being thick,(I've never bought one of these before, infact I haven't even seen one,)

Please help.

Here are the links:

Here's the bearing I'm trying to obtain, though I've yet to access it so can't confirm its exact size/look.

Well I contacted the seller & he said the more expensive listing was incorrect & the part I want is the cheaper listing. smile.gif

He asked me if the rubber mount has split, as they sometimes do.

How do I check this without dismantling ?

The garage noted on the MOT that the top strut bearing was partially seized but no mention of split rubber & he pointed out the bearing I needed in the workshop manual, how common is it for these to split?

The bearing arrived today by courier, very fast !

(cost of bearing £22.60 with free P&P !)

QH branded so not too bad quality,

The cheapest I could get from MrT was £88 !It's being fitted tomorrow.

Although I have plenty of tools for fixing my bikes I didn't have the correct tools to fit the strut bearing,

So I got local garage to fit it today, (& he did the tracking too.) All nice & quiet now. :driving:

& he only charged me £20.

:D
