Discovery 3 Front Hub and Swivel Housing (Knuckle)
Important note concerning Discovery 3 models up to VIN 9A496359:
The swivels listed here take M14 size track rod ends and are the original fitment for vehicles from VIN 9A496360 onwards. Vehicles prior to this VIN originally had swivels taking M12 size track rod ends on different track rods - these earlier swivels are not available. Each of the swivels listed here may be fitted to vehicles up to VIN 9A496359 by also fitting one of the later track rod assemblies:
For the RH swivel fit LR010667 for RHD or LR010668 for LHD
For the LH swivel fit LR010668 for RHD or LR010667 for LHD
Please refer to the Steering Rack section for further details of track rods and track rod ends.
The lower ball joints listed here fit into lower arms with 35mm ball joint holes and are the original fitment for vehicles from VIN 9A502440 onwards, plus all armoured vehicles. Non-armoured vehicles prior to this VIN originally had different lower arms taking a different diameter ball joint - this earlier ball joint is not available. To replace a lower ball joint on a non-armoured vehicle prior to VIN 9A502440, first measure the ball joint diameter. One of two actions should then be followed:
If the ball joint present is not 35mm, you will need to replace both the ball joint and lower arm, available together as a lower arm assembly - please refer to the front suspension section for details of the correct lower arm specification for your vehicle.
If the ball joint present is 35mm, the lower arm has already been replaced with the later type and you can order one of the 35mm ball joints listed above.
