Hi Jim, welcome to the forum. The Libra is a great car isn't it :D

I'm sure you've had this answered elsewhere as well but the yellow joint on your diagram is definately a Rover Metro / 100 front lower ball joint (std car not GTA / GTI).
Also, the Peugeot track rod fits the upper suspension arm nearest the bulkhead with the metro part nearest the hub.

Incidentally, not sure if you've bought your joints yet but cheapest I've found has been skscarparts.co.uk - I'm calling in there tomorrow to buy joints to refurb my rear suspension (same as yours) and I'm hoping for a bit of discount! :D

re awakening an old thread. Can't believe it was back in 2016 but I'd bought 8 of the FAI land rover track rod ends but had only fitted the two on the one arm that was moving badly. I finally got around to replacing the other six this week. After doing so I noticed that the arm I'd done back in 2016 now has quite a bit of movement again so it seems 5 years of road use (around 15,000 miles) and 13 track days (mainly on slicks) is enough to wear out the the FAI ball joints on the arm that takes all the load on most UK clockwise tracks - the N/S lower. I've ordered another two so I'll then have a full set of brand new joints. I'll also do the lower one on the upright whilst the arm is off the car.

Of the joints that I removed from the other arms, most actually seemed okay. Two of the six had detectable play but the other four probably could have stayed on.
