Re: Opel Rekord B/C

I checked the ball joint yesterday and found that I will have to shorten the rod! Not enough free space. I will go look for an engineering firm to do the machining for me! I have some friends in the business! The rest of the ball joint is exactly to the original specs!! :D

Re: Opel Rekord B/C

The Commodore/Rekord ball joint fits! Shaft is 31mm too long. All it requires is a spacer! The costly option is to machine it down! Made my own spacers! Paid R240 for two new ball joints! Very happy man!

Re: Opel Rekord B/C

I will keep him in mind! Having the re-conditioned ball joint fitted for the time being! Very tight fit still movable! :o
The recon ball Joint is working well and control is much better!
The El Camino is very similar but larger! Would have been no problem!
