doin a ball joint pass side upper, the hole is much bigger on the top than the bottom,the standard ball joint for late bay upper is physically much smaller than what i need, gsf went back to 68 n cudnt find a bigger ball joint to fit the hole on mine, heritage said there isnt a bigger one... have i got a beam off an earlier bus on mine? or does anyone know what ball joint i need? Cheers

Your beam wont be wrong as all late bays had the same beam..earlies and splits had a different bolt pattern.
