    Seems the inadvertently came out with the ball joints.
    Got two mangled ones so can't pop em back in.

    Its the bits that should stay in the hub...but are sized on...

  2. Bit confused to what you mean mate, that pic is a lower arm, but there is no 'bushing' i know of just the machined taper in the hub that the ball joint fits into?

    Ahhh but the pics doesn't show the taper. The bit over the taper is the soft metal bush from the hub that the ball joint sits in!

    Here's where the bushing should be...

    Had to lift a set from another hub and press em back in.

    Oh and no one does replacements.... a market for a self lub bush that makes removal easier me thinks.

    Yep part of the upright only. Common for them to stick sadly
