Hi all

More bad news on my used lotus I bought. They pressure tested the radiator and popped it! I didn’t ask them to do the test only change the fluid so the cost of replacement is on them. However they said I also needed new balljoints etc to pass the Pennsylvania inspection. What is the vag life on a radiator and balljoint. Mine have very high miles on it.
Thanks!!!

Agreed!! better have 100-150K on it. Never yet heard of balljoints on this forum except in an accident.

As far as I know, ball joints on Evoras aren't replaceable outside of buying new wishbones... maybe just get some fresh grease and new boots / clip rings on the ball joints?
