Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

Our expert insights into anti-roll bar drop link replacement

What does an anti-roll bar drop link do?

A drop link is used to connect the end of the anti-roll bar to the damper or a control arm. Its purpose is to keep the vehicle stable during sharp turns by pivoting between the two sides of your car’s suspension.

What are the symptoms of a broken anti-roll bar drop link?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your anti-roll bar drop link:

  • Poor handling

  • Clunking or rattling noises, especially when turning corners

  • A rough or bumpy ride

What happens when we do an anti-roll bar drop link replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect your suspension system and potentially test drive your car

  • They will then advise on which parts of the suspension need to be replaced

  • If necessary they will replace your anti-roll bar drop link(s)

  • They will then test drive the car again to be certain that the suspension is fixed

Hey Fixter, how often should I replace my anti-roll bar drop link?

There is no set lifespan for anti-roll bar drop links, however we recommend having your suspension system inspected every 50,000 miles to ensure there is no damage or faults.

Want to learn more about anti-roll bar drop link replacement?

A drop link is used to connect the left and right hand suspension components to either end of the anti-roll bar running across the car. This system works to keep the vehicle stable during sharp turns by pivoting between the two sides of your car’s suspension.

The anti-roll bar comes into play if the suspension on one side of the car moves but the other side does not, for example if only one side of the car goes over a speed bump. When this happens, one end of the anti-roll bar is raised – twisting the bar.

The force needed to twist the bar is all transmitted through the link rods which are light metal or plastic rods with a ball joint on either or both ends. This in turn stabilises the car over bumps or round tight corners.

There is no set lifespan for anti-roll bar drop links, however we recommend having your suspension system inspected every 50,000 miles to ensure there is no damage or faults. This is because over time these parts will wear down and will have to be replaced. It's important to keep an eye on all parts of your suspension because they play a crucial role in the smooth operation of your vehicle.

When driving on bumpy surfaces, your suspension system takes a beating. For example, if one wheel goes down into a pothole, much of the shock is absorbed by the anti-roll bar and its drop links. Over time these parts can become worn out, especially if you frequently drive on rough terrain.

Usually, there a few signs you can look for:

  • Poor handling

  • Clunking or rattling noises, especially when turning corners

  • A rough or bumpy ride

During the repair our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect your suspension system and potentially test drive your car

  • They will then advise on which parts of the suspension need to be replaced

  • If necessary they will replace your anti-roll bar drop link(s)

  • They will then test drive the car again to be certain that the suspension is fixed

There's no set lifespan of an anti-roll bar drop link, but we recommend having your suspension inspected every 50,000 miles.

No, you should avoid driving with a broken anti-roll bar drop link. If these parts begin to fail, your suspension will be seriously affected. This will make handling your car very difficult, especially when turning corners, which could result in an accident or damage to your vehicle.

Over time these parts will wear down and will have to be replaced. This will happen more quickly if you often drive on rough surfaces or if you have bad driving habits that put strain on your suspension system.
