Lupo GTI Rally car project

Recommended Posts

I believe there is only one post on here with someone who got the correct sized aftermarket ball joint, the brand they got was not mainstream, unfortunately the PN they shared didn't work.

Lots of comparison pictures in posts, Gti ones have a longer tab that fits into the control arm. When you search online they just lump the Gti in with standard Lupo ball joints. some people have had the short ones fitted by garages who didn't check size and had problems with drive train.

yeah  I found that post the other day, was the RTS Spanish Ball joint. 93-90973-156 for right and last 3 digit 256 for left.
Looked them up  but it says  for  - 6X1 AND  6E1,  but skajme seemed to get the right ones

Let us know :D , I got a set of new ball joints in boxes with my car, but the also seem to be the non GTI ones. 
I looked into it and I Can get genuine here in Japan but they're well over 100 GBP a side!
