Rear wishbones interchangable?

PostPost by: bilcoh » Wed Nov 30, 2011 5:13 am

Hi all:

Archive search hasn't answered this one. Are the rear A-arms interchangeable from side to side? If I'm replacing a right one, do I need to find a right one, or will any straight one work?

Thanks,

Dave

They always measured identically so interchangeable in my experience.

Ditto, mine are off the car at the moment and as far as I can see they are the same. I don't know if the are the same dimensions as the +2 though, it would be worth checking if you're buying s/h off Ebay, etc.

+2 wishbones are much longer.

Thanks for the responses. These are Elan, going on an Elan, so only worried about right to left, not S2 to +2.

Thanks again,

Dave
