Please note that this listing may not fit some Military Land Rovers as they use M16 bolts to fix the A Frame Housing to the A Frame Arms, if you are unsure the M16 bolt uses a 24mm spanner to fit the bolts.
If yours is a Military vehicle and requires one of these please see this here – GL1274
We are now replacing the Standard Rubber Boots on our A-Frame Ball Joints with our UPGRADED polyurethane POLY BOOTS, GL1174 we are doing this during assembly here as they are not as easy to change later once fitted on a vehicle. A common problem with Rubber Boots these days is perishing/cracking, Rubber doesn’t seem to be what it used to be. Polyurethane will not perish/crack like normal Rubber so will give a much longer service life. During assembly, our Stainless Steel clip is fitted to the A-frame ball joint. We also pre grease the joint here.
This is an Adjustable & Greaseable A-Frame Ball Joint ready pressed into the housing to make it much easier for you to fit to your Land Rover, A frame joints can be very difficult to get out of the old housing and just as difficult to press the new one in, this is why we have done this ready assembled in the housing.
This A-Frame Ball Joint can be adjusted if you do find you get play.
To adjust, tighten the 19mm adjuster nut 1/4 turn at a time until the play has gone and knock over the lock tabs once done.
By greasing the a-frame ball joint you will prevent the adjuster nut from seizing up which is commonly known with adjustable joints.
