    I have just dismantled my uprights. The threads on the lower end, where it fits in the trunion, are serviceable but certainly past their best.
    As I understand it, the standard fix was a pair if Walford Trunions. But I guess these are no longer available? Does anyone have a pair knocking around by any chance, or know someone that does.
    Cheers Robin

    Had a NOS suspension leg still in original wrapping, no-one here wanted that either. The trunnions I probably let go for less than I should have but that's life.
    The purchaser of the trunnions turned out to be a trader and went under the banner of 'marinamadness' on ebay. He may still have them if he can be traced .

    Try South Wales Propshaft.
    they list them but I have a feeling that they might have sold all their stock. They might tell you where.

    Thanks - good find.

    I have emailed them. As you say, still listed on their website, but the last time it was updated was 2013! - Still worth a try. I'll report back when I hear something.

    Cheers, Robin

    I had a quick reply. They have some in stock - but only the left had one - so not a lot of use. Being the front suspension I wouldn't fancy not fitting them in pairs.
    So.... The search continues.

    Cheers, Robin

    I think they sold off a lot of slow moving stock in 2013 or thereabouts. I did put in an offer for some parts but was unsuccessful, maybe because I was being selective, and not wanting a large quantity across the board.
