Parts compatibility

Forum: 

Hi - my daughter has a 2004 Chrade. I’ve just put two new driveshafts on and I can detect a small amount of play in front rhs lower track control arm to hub assembly ball joint. I’d rather sort this before a potential MOT fail. Are the suspension systems between Charade / Coure / Sirion all the same? I can find lots of lower TCA’s for the latter two for about £40,yet for a charade they’re about £120 quid plus! The only difference I can tell is that the cheaper ones have a bracket for an arb.

Can I use a Coure / Sirion n simply chop the bracket off???

I’ve asked the only Daihatsu parts desk I can find - and they don’t know!!!

The OEM part number differs by only the last digit......

Help!!!
