Sel & all,
if you want to give this a try......the lower ball joint of a Volvo 122
(Amazon) *almost* fits....I say almost, because the spread between the
two outer mount bolts is wider than the Datsun unit, and so you'd have
to fab and weld a widening shoulder onto each side of the lower A-arm.
The inner bolt holes on the joint are the same as roadster.
I bought a Volvo joint to test out it's 'retrofit-ability', and when
I've had a chance to assess the viability, I'll report back - Unless
someone else does it first. With the suspension parts being / becoming
NLA, we have to start figuring out new ways to keep things going.
I bought the joint here in Canada for about CDN$150 (USD$94), which
included 15% in taxes, so it's not particularly cheap, but all
indications were that it was readily available. I got it the next day.
A disclaimer! If you try this, it is completely at your own risk!! Do
not modify any part of your suspension unless you are confident in what
