    Hi Chris, Thanks for your assistance. Totally unintentional if my membership has lapsed. My membership just happens to coincide with when the Westy insurance is due, so its always a good prompt. Paul

    Hi Chris, I believe I am a paid up member. I've just been on my bank to check when the payment was last deducted from my account. Unfortunately I can't go back far enough! I've received the latest club magazine and calendar, which I trust I wouldn't have received if I was no longer a member? Cheers Paul

    Hi Folks, Hopefully someone can shed some light please. Apologies if this is a daft question! I understand what SORN in terms of DVLA means, however, under my forum name in profile details, it shows WSCC S.O.R.N. What does this mean? Cheers Paul

    Front lower ball joint issue!

    All sorted. Once the nut was past the nylon insert. I nipped the joint in a vice between the casing and the top of the stud. Could then turn the nut down on to the block, whilst hold it with anthother spanner. Cheers Oh and sailed through the MoT this morning.

    Front lower ball joint issue!

    When reassembled the nut is enclosed in the hub housing. I would have to disassemble, hope the weight of the car has compressed the block onto the taper, try a nip it then reassemble. What a ball ache, pardon the punn!

    Front lower ball joint issue!

    Thanks Terry. Did wonder about setting to and cutting it, but thought less haste and pose the question first to see what others have done.

    Front lower ball joint issue!

    Hi Folks, Would value your advice please. I've come to replace the lower front ball joints on the Westy. However the replacments i've received have a longer ball stud. The one i have removed is 70mm long measured from the base plate to the top of the stud. The new ones are 4mm longer which isn't enough room to sit in the housing. As it clashes with the inside of the hub housing. The new ones are supplied by Quinton Hazel, not sure of the supplier of the ones that are on. If i order replacements how can i be sure they will be the correct ones. Would appreciate your suggestions. Cheers Paul
