anyone else fitted r19 wishbones with widetrack and had any problems?

heres mine :roll: got widetrack fitted at hillpower last june and i supplied a set of r19 wishbones from gsf, everything was fine for 4 months then started to hear this knocking sound from the front suspension :( could'nt work out what it was for another few months, then found out it was the bottom balljoints that were shagged. changed the wishbones for another set of r19 ones and 2 months later balljoints have gone again. :evil: ive had a look on dialogys and r19 and williams wishbones have 2 different part numbers, so looks like im gonna have to bit the bullet and pay renaults crazy price :cry: rant over.

Hi Jay!! Havent spoken to you for ages! Hows it going??

Did you use R19 wishbones for both sides??

As far as I was aware, you can only replace the williams wishbones with R19 ones on the passenger side. Im almost certain you have to use a willy one for the driverside. If thats of any help...

How much of a twat do i feel...thought you was talking about driveshafts...duuhhh...Sorry

I always thought you could use R19 wishbones too, in fact that was going to be my plan of action!

ive gone through a few of there ball joints jay, but the wishbones have been spot on tbh, but for the cost of them and the amount i actually go though i dont mind using them lol

Why not just get a pair of balljoints from reno?
The copy ones from gsf are probably not up to the job.

lol, hello mike :D im good fella.

richy, yeah i know what you mean. think i'll just change the balljoints for now and see how that goes as i don't fancy paying 140 to reno for a pair of lower arms :evil:
