Default Lemforder right hand side track rod end

Long story, but i ended up with two Lemforder right side track rod ends.

Brand new, still in the box

£30 inc P&P

Would be happy to swap it for a pair of usable rover 75 rear anti roll bar mounts & rubber bushes.

BUMP!

offers then????

When my 75 received a advisory on slight play in the nearside track rod end i decided to track down a pair of TRW track rod ends. Quite difficult, one came from Germany, the other from Italy. One of the suppliers let me down so I purchased a Lemforder. Then out of the blue, the Italian supplier found another TRW for me. Hence the spare Lemforder.

Having had both TRW and Lemforder in my hand at the same time I can honestly say there was no visible difference between the too, other than one had slightly longer threads on the joint mount. So, in hindsight the Lemforder track rod ends would have worked fine, and should last as long as the originals.

Yes, they are more expensive but I have no desire to change the track rod ends ever again. Labour is expensive!
