    OK, just bear in mind that you need to check their work, there is no guarantee that they do a better job than the dealer.

    Re: Giriyondo vs Lebombo Border Crossings

    Giriyondo to Inhambane via Massingir sucks.

    Take OffTheHamsterWheel's advice. Early at Lebombo or go via Namaacha. But Namaacha is small and they could get congested.

    Use Komati and just make...

    The whole RMI club : there is no QA, there is no recourse, it's just an association of members that join by paying, there are no standards or entrance skill requirements.

    YOU DECIDE.

    Suspension Re: 2010 Nissan Xtrail Supsension Knocking

    My opinion: take it to a DEKRA roadworthy station and let them test for play on the front suspension. If they find nothing then I'd say you have driveline wear, probably an inner or outer CV joint.
