Top swivel pin/bearing query

Recommended Posts

2005/55 Defender Td5 Hardtop with no electronics.

Today, looking for an odd clicking noise from the OS front wheel, I started taking things apart.  Long story short, I am confused by my top swivel arrangement.  Everything else appears to be 110 - calliper, vented disc etc. - but the top swivel appears to be the Discovery type with the radial roller bearing under it (similar to STC226 but the non-ABS variant) rather than the type being sold for Defender (TAR100040 for mine, post XA159807).  So, has the wrong part been fitted?  Could I have a RR/Disco axle? Are they interchangeable - if I buy TAR100040 will it fit?

TIA

Chris

Is the swivel assembly on the other side the same and have you got any pics? My instinct would be to replace like for like as it if ain't broke, don't fix it.
