Hi Gavin

I just ordered a pair from Peter van der Meulen (NL). He just advertised some 
pairs on the Net. Btw. I have a Cam Gears steering rack. Would you know where 
to get new ball joints (those directly under the rubber gaiter i.e. inside 
the steering rack)? I had to replace them with used ones some time ago.

Best regards,
