Yes you can....
You can also use Mk3 Astra ones or Calibra ones.

Front suspension wishbones are about £15 each, New, from places like Autovaux :up:

That's for the basic arm, you'd have to reuse your original balljoints which is potentially a little extra work if they're the rivetted type.

or, buy a new complete unit including ball joint for £30 each ...

The engine steady you're after is as rare as hens teeth apparently - best bet is get one from a breaking car ...

The ones we got off eGay were under £15 each (inc. delivery) and included ball joints.

crikey, there's ebay sellers doing the ball jointed version, as a pair, delivered, for £36 ...

It's prices like that that make used stuff almost not worth the effort of selling/ sending?!
