that sounds like the lower ball joint to the hub.....

i was after the long one at the front of the wishbone

nut is held by a welded cage,
and thats where the dirt gets stuck and it rusts it all up......

bolt feeds from the front.....

looks like about 100mm long from under the bolt head to the end.
Maybe an M12???

please can anyone clarify.

thank you

If you can’t find a bolt, you could use a length of M12 studding, & use two nuts on the studding to make the length of bolt you need.

Wayne,

Do you need the nut as well?

as a last resort, could you remove the other one and use it as a guide, then go to a local ironmongers to get a replacement bolt etc?
