SS1 top wishbone

Post by tanuki » Thu Nov 09, 2017 8:08 am

I am looking for a top wishbone (RHS) for a friend here in France who needs to rebuild the front suspension of his SS1 - which has been now standing for several months -
We have received one LHS top wishbone already - purchased from Janice Chater - and have also orderer from Janice the RHS wishbone back in August but still waiting ... I am afraid that it will take still a bit of time before we receive it, and the car needs to be prepared for a winter rally, so my friend is starting to get nervous.

We are looking for another way of getting quickly a wishbone - I will keep the one from Janice in stock for my SST -
Nigel provided me with a quote, unfortunately he does not have top wishbones in stock at the moment, not until December or January ... hence my request here:

a/ would anyone have a front top wishbone for sale right now ?

b/ or would you have one kept in stock that you wanted to keep for your car but do not need at the moment ? In such case would you agree to provide it to us so that we could fix the car asap and in exchange we will place an order with Nigel to deliver a brand new one to you as soon as they become available - i.e within the next couple of months - The order to QRG would be done early so that you have a proof of purchase of course, and we will also pay for the shipment of your part ;)
( FYI the wishbone from QRG comes with the bushes+ball joint+pivot bolts )

Feel free to contact me here or on FB
Thanks for reading ;)

Believe you may be in luck as I'm always short on NS uppers, but feel I have a few OS uppers spare. Will check over weekend and get back to you.
