Re: lower ball joint

Changed them today.....and they had 12mm bolts on the nearside, 10mm bolts on the drivers side ....what a pig of a job getting the rusted / seized old pinchbolt out

I re-fitted the 12mm Lemforder version from EurocarParts and the new bolts fitted through the wishbones no problem why did the originals only have 10mm bolts in a >12mm hole ????

I also replaced the anti roll bar drop link rubbers - the through bolts had rusted away to about 1/2 their thickness !!!
