Hi
Having real trouble removing the bottom ball joints on my 2.2 project. Anyone have an old pair of knuckles/ hub i could use and try to change the balljoints on? I seriously doubt anything i find could be as as rusty as the ones I have!
Cheers

Can you post a picture of your requirements?

This is from the bagheera - but looks the same to me.
It is the circled upright which houses the wheel bearing, connects the steering/torsion bar and shocker. It houses the bottom balljoint too which is a screw fitting. I do not know if the 1.6 differs from the 2.2 but I would doubt that if only on efficiency grounds.
Thanks

What about these two?

Wheel bearings are seized but lower balljoints are actually O.K.

I think there are differences om the items showed from the bagheera.
The lower ball-joints are smaller and dust-plates and cylinders  are not the same as far as  I know.
The 1.6 and 2.2 Murena have the same front/
Only numbers for the frontshocks are different.
Torsion bars and stab bar are thicker.

I feel like Jonah, only my fish looks different.
Murena 2.2 Red 1982. Murena 1.6 black on places.

Haynes (or Similar) Simca 1100 Manual covers the front suspension nicely, torques etc...
