Suspension Part IIc

Posted: 16th November 2008 by asteriskr in Rallye 16v

NS wishbone off and stripped down in a fraction of the time that yesterday’s took, which just goes to show that things are a lot easier to do a second time around. Replaced both track rod ends too, which was a fairly simple job…

Update:

Just back from the local motor engineers, they’ve pressed the ball joints out of the old wish bone, but then hit the snag that they’re not the same. As I was stripping it I noticed that the two arms were different, but it’s only when they’ve come to press the new ball joints in that the difference has become notable.
