Rear A arm question

Quick question on parts compatibility. Will the rear A arm (upper link) on a Defender 110 interchange with a Disco?

It looks like the brake brackets are dfferent (cast on the defender) but the link arms, ball joint and other bits may be the same?

Thanks

Same part, unless referring to the bracket that holds the ball joint. Those are not all the same

Yes, you can swap it out with one from a disco. Not sure what "brake bracket " you're referring to

Thanks guys. I meant chassis brackets, the triangle ones that Evilfij is referring to.

For the ball joint bracket that bolts to the arms, is the only difference boge unit vs. non-boge unit?

Thanks guys.
Getting one off in a junkyard in Canada with all the rust should be fun.

Good luck. I can't imagine how you broke one in the first place or why you need it. If you just want to eliminate the boge you can cut that part off.

What are you trying to accomplish? You can buy the ball joint and its holder together for not a lot of money.

I bought a rolling chassis with these parts missing. Trying to piece things together so I can move it around easily. I figure it will be easiest to get the whole A arm as an assembly. Cordless sawzall to cut the frame mounts off.
