Hi ho possums,

Just a quick reflection from our 3 mth WA trip July - Sept this year.

Our 2000 Merc Sprinter lost a front swaybar mount through metal fatigue ! Unusual but there you go.

Two Geraldtn businesses that provided superb service and assistance & which I thoroughly recommend are;

AXIS AUTOS, 284 Marine Tce Geraldton, located just down from the Tourist Office & adjoining the 24hr free camp carpark.

Thanks for I'll check mine.

My trip problem was the chassis/body section fractured at front left s/bar mount .

had replacemt bush & mount flown ADL to Geraldton over weekend for $38 ..where Perth had to source from east coast at about $80 & a week !

ADL Co out at Wingfield , Van Spares are a great Merc source of parts & service.
