clearance between on swivel balljoint

Post by marrowpe »

on my BX TRD Break there is some clearance between swivel balljoint and suspension arm (see picture). Does anybody have experience with that? How can I fix it? Which part is required?
Thanks a lot for tips and help

It's a swivel joint , it's supposed to have a gap to allow for up/down movement it is a taper fitting into the suspension arm, it looks ok to me unless your ball-joint is worn but this would require further investigation.
