Yes you can get wishbones with removable balljoints BUT by the time you come to replace the balljoint again it would probably want bushes in the rest of the wishbone. I cant see the point of just replacing the balljoint as you can buy wishbones for less than £25 a side. To buy a balljoint and the 2 bushes on their own will cost you most of that. I replaced track rod ends, drop links and wishbones for less than £80. I appreciate you have to have the money to do it but just do the let and then you know its all good for a while!
1.9d Mk2 (M59/BE4/5) with battle scars from a conservatory attack. Previously owned a 1.4i Mk2 Forte.
ive decided to go with what you say bud, bought two arms, also going to change both springs and anti roll bar links, cant seem to find a top mount kit for mk 2 belingo's though!!! anyone know where i can get them?
Where have you got the wishbones from and what have you paid
I got them off ebay! the dealer says there quality parts and i paid 60 with delivery for them, eurocar parts want 60 for 0ne arm, which usually comes in a blank cardboard box .....
Got mine off ebay too, said to be top quality, but the ball joints are shagged again after a little over a year
the ones i recieved today are trupart arms, my cuz stocks them in his parts place and said that they were ok and the price was good to, but tbh the balljoint gaiters look easy to tear!!! we shall see...
