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
....so 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 !!!
