Hi Thomas

I looked it up and==

It tells me in the S type manual that -"The lower ball joint is serviceable and is a press fit" .???

 

It says that the lower control arm -Is mounted with one Hydro-bush [the front one] and a rubber bush

both are seviceable.???

 

But the upper control arm you have to purchase the complete arm.????

 

I hope this helps.

You will need a wedge type ball joint splitter to remove the joint Thomas, quite reasonable from Euro Car Parts
