Welcome to the forum. Looks a tidy car.

It's too far for me, but I like them.

Rear upper suspension arms are around £100.

Front upper suspension arm? You have got me on that one, its a strut.

Reg no would enable check on MOT fail.

(I charge £40 per hour, standard private investigator rates), 5* hours research = £200. Oh, okay then I'll take the car as payment in  kind.

Yes, must be offside rear. Assuming a typo.
If they are corroded to the extent of failing the MOT they are borked. Snappage not far away. Don't ask me how I know. Replacement is doable but a PITA requiring the rear suspension gubbins to be dropped out. At least that is how mine was done. New coil springs and bushes also required in my experience. This obviously costs more than most people are prepared to pay so the cars are usually fragged at this point. Shame really. They deserve to be saved. Am happy to save this one, but money is in short supply as usual. As is storage space, but that's my problem. If open to offers I can make one, but it will be all I can afford!

Progressing slowly but surely!
Now an attractive* satin black with all the mechanical stuff completed. Almost ready for the MOT now. Just a few niggles to sort out. Bonnet cable, ignition switch, rear exhaust etc.
Ahem....
