182 cup ball joints



  182 Inferno
Hi,

Does anyone have the correct part number for 182 cup ball joints? I have received standard 182 part (with reg given) which don't fit

Thanks in advance

The Lemforder ones from Euro are the ones i have fitted.

Didn't know you could get wrong ball joints for them. Isn't it just the wishbones that are different between cup and non cup to give more castor?

I thought all the 182's had the extra camber wishbones, and only the early 172's had less castor wishbones.

Thanks for all your help!

I've read up the bolts are 13mm for a cup and 10mm standard? Couple people here said 12mm cup, thank you for links!

Apparently the wishbones are the only thing thay is the same on standard and cup :s

Think ill sticky with advice from you guys!

So, because of the size differences, can I or can I not take my suspension from my standard 182 and put straight onto my 182 cup? (Bit off topic, but I want the suspension :p )

If you swap the 54mm shocks/knuckles/hubs & drive shafts to replace the 60mm cup items, you will be OK.

People usually dont bother trying to fit 60mm suspension to 54mm cars, although as Steve has said, it is possible.

It did puzzle me, but as always, we haven`t been told even half the story.
Perhaps he has a 182 with a snapped cambelt & new set of AST`s?

Nooo no, I had a standard 182 and I'd just replaced the suspension with genuine renault parts. My car was then written off in RTA, I now have 182 cup. The suspension on my cup is knackered so I wanted to put the new genuine parts I'd bought on it.
And with the size differences I wasn't sure if I could

  Hi comp phase 1
Your front coilover won't fit. Where the bottom of the suspension bolts to the hub, the 182 cup hub has 60mm bolt spacing and your 182 hubs are 54mm.
Pretty sure all 172/182 and cup variants have the same ball joints. Can't you use the ones off your written off one ?

You could switch it all over as Steve said, but you'd basically be converting a 182 cup suspension to std 182... I personally really wouldn't, just grab another set of new suspension and put the old stuff for sale

Unfortunately no, they were due to be replaced
