Front ball joint 2b plus


Recommended Posts

On the double wishbone you've got, the top ball joint is Transit track rod end and the bottom is Peugeot 309/405.

Other useful part numbers are here;

I have the wishbone upgrade kit and pound for pound, it's the best money I spent on the car.

Hi Richy 

on kit spares there are two versions ET15 and ET35. Do you know what the difference are?

 

thanks

Tony

The position of the wheel arch brackets relative to the hub. You need to check what the et is on your current wheels and pick the kit that is the closest match.

The wheel et should be cast in to the wheel somewhere on the inside.

Here's the pictures I promised. I'm posting them here is case it's any interest to others. The GBS  wishbone handling pack https://www.kitspares.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=43_40&product_id=539&car=43 is an upgrade for 2B's that already have double wishbones on the front so NOT the sub-k version.

It comprises a new upper wishbone which moves the upper ball joint positions rearwards to improve castor together with a new dummy strut with wheelarch bracket welded on and this raises the position of the upper ball joint to remove bump steer.

The wishbone mounts in the same place as the original one but you will probably find the wheelarch bracket tubes are in slightly different positions so if your current arches are bolted on, you might need to make adaptor plates to pick up in the original holes in the arches. I used some 3mm ally plate and some 20mm plastic conduit clamps.

Pictures below is this kit on my car. The wishbone mountings are hidden inside some black fibreglass covers I made to cover the sharp edges for IVA.
