Hi all,

Lower wishbones seem to be readily available and I have a pair waiting to be refurbished off the car ready for a big swap over session, I can't find a pair of decent upper wishbones though to do the up front work on. Upper wishbones for the early cars have the fixed spring seats and narrower diameter springs, not the swivel seat.

I do of course have a pair on the car but the plan is to get a set sorted ahead of removing them to minimize downtime.

One of the lower wishbones spares I picked up recently had a crack unfortunately and I'd prefer to avoid issues like that but the rust is not an issue as long as they are not substantially weakened - the parts will get sent off for chemical stripping and E-coat.

Many thanks for reading.

Many thanks

Is the width of the spring seat attachment onto the wishbone the same on both seats? If so, you should be able to use either wishbone, I know the early and late wishbones have different part numbers, but it's worth checking.

900T '81
99 '83 TurboKiller
99 EMS '77
