Re-new-it Ball joints and steering rods

Post by TIMKEN » 22 Jan 2018 18:34

I am bussy with a Safari rebuild and want to overhaul the complete steering. No luck for new ones at our local spares shop. Any idea where to found new parts or do anybody have experience whith re new it refurbishment. What i can understand is that they pump in some sort of polymer that take up the wear.

Please advice and if it is worth it who do you recoment?

Nico, ek het daai al twee keer probeer.

Op ball joints wat net draai en nie op en af beweeg nie, en ook nie veel stampe kry nie, kan dit amper die moeite werd wees.

Maar op my Patrol se "drag link" het dit minder as 3000km gehou.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

I got a fairly good second hand steering box lying around
