Oh right I understand you now. Here was me thinking that by you putting on 2" longer track control arms you would have a really mean looking Hi-Jet with loadsa  negative camber and an increased track of 4" !!! What a shame !!
Its the tie-rod you are meaning.  

I will dig out a couple for you tomorrow. Give me a call tomorrow on 0786 303030 9 and we can sort it out.

Yes that would be a good idea to talk to the guy who is doing the job. Ask him to give me a call around 12ish or later. Cheers.

Yeah I have sold people complete sets of 1.3 petrol arms with ball joints because of this exact problem.

Also some people have track rod ends with with a threaded shaft, and others with a threaded hole.. The track rod ends with a threaded hole are a pain to get hold of.

Switch over to 1.3 normal ones and life is good.

New ones ?? Steady on. I think others like HJ, Logi,
or Rich might have a better idea than me, on this exotic expensive Isle of Wight. We get robbed blind here for parts.
Flipping good job there are still plenty of Hi-Jets to buy for spares. It would be nice if they had decent headlights in them or good sliding door handles !!!

I thought you were looking to buy new ones rather than used ones. That's why I directed you to others on the Forum that would know where to get new ones. Give me a call in the morning please.

i have been scouring lancashire today for parts in breakers yards.. i missed 2 hi jet vans in bury at a place full of dismantling yards called pimhole ..a breaker from leeds gobbled the whole vans up ..on the way home near to my town i saw a hijet in a garden .knocked on the door had a chat with the owner whos willing to let it go but wants £400.he says its a runner but the relay under the steering wheel has gone astray ..its a 1.2 efi on a w reg looks a little tatty .maybe i could get a deal with him but would the parts fit mine .im guessing not ,,

woody do you know the part numbers of the shocks on the se ..i have had a email this morning from a ebay seller ..eBay item number:130573747563


Hello, Thank you for your email, Please can you forward us your vehicle registration number so we can have a look for you? Also if you can get the part number off the shocks that are on the car at the moment we can try and cross the number over for you.

Regards Michael
