I had a feeling that was coming 😃

Part no: 693684 lower ARB nut. (5)

Part no: 693665 (4)

Already dealt with parts (4) and (5) Richard :-D the Drop bar link - that is number (5)

The issue is with item number one of the pivot support..... That is part of the suspension strut.

The bit is (1) highlighted in Red

Depending on where you look, the nuts are either special flanged nuts (genuine PSA), or standard nyloc with/without a washer. I have a feeling the genuine ones aren't standard thread, no idea of non-genuine ones though.

Which is the bit I posted - the bottom of the strut is held to the hub carrier by the top of the drop link (see the pics Bobbins posted with the long bar on the top end of the link), hence the nut (1) is shown on the ARB page.... :roll:

Oh of course, I see it now, apologies Richard, that would explain why there is no separate part and the top of the drop link having a very long screw,

It must be the current topical events causing me to have a Top Hat moment!

I changed my driveshafts over the weekend, The job went really well. My only issue was the passenger side arb drop link lower ball joint was just spinning and the hex was rounded off. I had replacement drop links so was able to get the mole grips in to hold it. The rest all behaved and came undone.
The job has resolved my knocking while steering was turned and vibration issue too. Drivers side inner uj was real stiff.
Thank you everyone for all your time, help and advice.
