    Hi Shoji

    The part number is correct going by the parts books I have here, but they are 54mm not 56mm but that maybe just a typo.

    Hi Col. How's the weather in my home town of Hobart?

    Thanks for the heads up. I will check with Marleen in Holland on the size.
    I went to fit the torsion bar pens and they ended up being longer than the original???
    They are not advertised as being for the 17 - only the 12.
    So another question is, are those part numbers for the pen different to the 17? Part number: 7700556736.

    Cheers. John

    Not sure what the weather has been like in Hobart but up north it has been great (summer is back again)

    Not exactly sure what you mean by torsion bar pens, I am assuming you mean the drop links from the top wish bone down to the torsion bar. If they say that they fit the R12 you would think that they would fit the R17 because the suspension is the same except for shock and spring rates.

    Your correct. The drop links. I pulled one off to replace and low and behold they are different in length.
    The thread is almost touching the lower wishbone making near impossible to attach the washers, rubbers and nut.
    This without the torsion/sway bar off the car. As well, I have to knock the wishbone pin in a bit to attach the drop link.
    it is too long.
    Col. Would you have the part number for comparison?

    Hi Shoji

    The part numbers for the drop links that I have here are as follows

    Renault R12 R1330-R1337-R1338 77 01 453 465

    Renault R15 R1300-R1301-R1302-R1304 77 01 453 465 & 77 01 452 078

    Renault R17 R1313-R1317-R1323-R1327 77 01 453 465 & 77 01 452 078

    These parts numbers include the drop link with washers, rubbers and nut

    I'm not sure what the difference is in two numbers, it maybe length.

    Just as a comparison the ones on my 76 wagon which are not original there is a distinctive gap between the drop link and the lower wishbone and on my 73 wagon which has original drop links, which are almost touching the lower wishbone.

    The 76 wagon is complete and sitting level and the 73 wagon is just a shell so its front is raised so may make a bit of difference.

    Can you possibly cut some thread off the bottom of the drop link to make them fit and still leave enough thread protruding out of the nut when done up tight?

    I also find that having both wheels at the same height makes the fitting of the torsion bar easier.

    I'm worried it might throw the front out of spec if I fit these longer drop links.
    It will push the bar down
    I do have new sway bar bushes to fit, so I might try the drop links on the weekend.

    The only spec that it will change is roll stiffness, and I don't think you will notice any difference as long as the drop links don't touch the lower wishbone.

    Remove the bar and the drop links. Gave the bar a fresh coat of paint and wacked it back on with the new droppers. Had to cut only 5mm off the threads. Thanks for your help Col!

    I have seen drop links that scratch the lower wishbone as well. It may be just variance between manufacturers. No adverse effect if you need to cut a bit off the end to fit, but you can always attach the sway bar end in first and then attach to upper wishbone. Both sway bar ends disconnected, of course, and don't do up the bottom drop link nuts before you connect at the top. Might need a bit of compression of the spring to take the load off the shock bottom bolt, just in case you need to slide it in and out a bit, but not really unavoidable (a soft face hammer does the trick just as well).
