Have you ever compared the aftermarket ones to the originals?????? Nope, or you wouldn't say buy the original. Aftermarket is the way to go, much stronger.

Aftermarket is the way to go, much stronger, probably no need for the adjustable ones if you are running stock or nearly stock suspension.

Definatley change it, either bend back(if not to bad) and strengthen or just replace with after market.

Brad, when I was your age I used to knick my dads car on a Saturday night, pick up my mates and go rally driving.
Always parked it up with something broken. Always denied any knowledge how or why the car was buggered.
He used to curse that make and model but I made a point of helping him fix it.

30 years later we were talking about that car and I came clean with him. Trouble is, he knew the whole time.

Could I suggest you do nothing, wait for him to find the problem, deny any knowledge and help him fix it.

30 years from now fess up, admit to your dad it was you, share a beer and have a laugh. Then RUN.....hahaha.


Cheers......Lionel.
