lower ball joint

Hi, I suspect this is not the correct forum but I couldn't find a section for suspension.....

Clio 2 2003 1.2 expression..
I found quite a lot of play in the nearside lower ball joint.
Despite removing it and showing them the part, dealer says this is no longer available separately and I will have to buy a complete lower wishbone assembly 60 and also a modified anti roll bar mount 35 .
I have found the lower ball joint on ebay for less than 10 so I probably won't use that one but have found a Lemforder one (apparantly Renault O.E. suppliers) on EuroCarParts for a reasonable 20......but they list 2 types, one with a 10mm hole and one with a 12mm hole.
I crawled under last night to find an M10 spanner (17mm) too tight and an M12 (19mm) one too loose

I also noticed the rubber doughnut mounting of the anti roll bar where it mounts onto the wishbone was split
but that looks simple enough to does the ball joint if I can get the right one

Anyone ???

Replies reasonably quickly appreciated, thanks
