Indy Rear Wishbone Nut

The pics below show my left and right rear upper wishbones. The left seems to have lost its locknut on the bit that does the camber adjustment. Does anyone know what size this is and where I can get one? Please ignore the liberal coating of CV joint grease! TVM

That's a result. I was going to ring them first but the thought of sending them a cheque for a single nut was holding me back!

Just rung 'em and it's a standard 20mm half nut. Job done.

If there's one part of the car that needs to belt and braces appraoch to threadlock and lockwire, it's those nuts!

I've heard a couple of stories of people finding a rear wheel seriously out of shape only to find the nuts had loosed competely off - not worth thinking about if it happens at speed

Pretty much what happened to me. Came off track and someone pointed out the massive degrees of camber I was running!
