    Thats deffo not right mate, they should sit flush inside each other. There should be a recess in the black bit to take the purple bit (ooooer mrs!!). its a sod to get in though...

    yeh, other side sits in nicely, this side never has though?
    i had a new wishbone about 2 months ago, so maybe the old wishbone didn't help, and now i have a new 1, the old 1 might have damaged the bush?
    i guess i will soon find out!

    If you have different brands of wishbone on the car the bushes might sit a little differently to each other, if you get another Meyle wishbone it may even them up.

    the distance between the lollipop and the balljoint to the chassis is a fixed length...the only thing that can affect it is the position/condition of the balljoint...you might well need a new wishbone that side.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
