This kit has everything you need to swap swivel balls. Lock washers not included. Ordered from Paddock Spares.

That is a RRC kit. Pretty sure it is not correct for the later style axles such as a NAS90.

Also the swivel bearings in these kits are absolute garbage, loose and cheesy cages.

I bought a kit and replaced the bearings with Timkens, the quality difference was discernable

I finished installing on Sunday. I have a 1997 NAS D90 with the ABS bits for the rough sensor.

I still have my original swivels on my '97.
The thing that is different on the '97's is the upper swivel pin is hollow to allow for the wheel slip sensor. So it's in question (to me anyway) is the upper hole in the ball larger to allow for a larger pin in this location. I think the 110's have a larger hole & pin so it's been my speculation that a 110 swivel could possibly be here. The upper pin is not the same on the '94 & '95 NAS 90's as on the '97's.

My LR factory parts book does not show the swivel ball part number to be different than the '94 & 95's nor the pins which is why I question it's validity.

If you look at fiche D6 the part numbers are the same as the kit contents.

Be careful of aftermarket swivel housings, I have heard of quite a few of them cracking in half. I would look for a good set of used ones that are teflon coated.

Great It was Brit-part branded. It's teflon coated. Both sides have already been installed by yours truly. It took me 2 and half days. I also installed new Ashcroft Transmissions ATB diffs in those 2 days.

I'll see if I can find out who made the ones that were breaking, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was britpart.

The thing that often goes neglected about discussing Britpart is that they are just a middle man retailer of parts. It's their supply manufacturers/sources that produce parts that are crap. So some items from Britpart are OK while most are cheap and will fail in short order.
Example.
Look at our D90 ignition switch made by Lucas, I've taken one out of the box and the die cast metal was so weak that the crimp would not hold and the switch together and was to the point of coming apart, new right out of the box ! The unit I got in a Britpart box was/is highly superior to the Lucas. The die cast metal is MUCH stronger (stiff) than that of the Lucas piece of crap.
