Hi,

Do you mean the tie rods that go between the rear hub and the centre of the car? They do get bent quite often by people trying to jack the car with them.

If so there are two types  - can you post a picture of yours?

Yep - and then tried to straighten it by the look of it.

That's what I'd call a channel type arm ( it's a U section) the best bet is to find people breaking Betas or selling Beta parts and ask if they have one. You might also look on the overseas sites such as Lancia Cape Town or Midwest Bayless to see if they have one. They are not al that common for exactly the reason you need one.

Push come to shove you can make one with some tube and a couple of rod ends but finding an OE one might be simpler.

Can't tell for sure from the pics but it looks like you have a pre-facelift series two with all pressed arms ?? If so you'll have the funny eccentric bolt tracking adjustment, I think it should be possible to change to fabricated style arms with simple adjustment you might wish to do this. Not 100% on the compatability but no doubt someone else will know.

I have found it. However, on the label, someone wrote 'HPE',  and here (http://lancia.co.za/article/Beta/Beta+Saloon+1.6+S1/Miscellaneous/2349727.html (http://lancia.co.za/article/Beta/Beta+Saloon+1.6+S1/Miscellaneous/2349727.html)) it is listed for a saloon...
But I would suspect that it's the same for all models, no? Anyway, the part number is 82349727. They also have it in stock here, but rather expensive: http://www.autoricambi.rollgarage.it/meccanici/58799-asta-originale-fiat-lancia-82349727.html. (http://www.autoricambi.rollgarage.it/meccanici/58799-asta-originale-fiat-lancia-82349727.html.)

Like I said, the one I have is NOS, but I have to mention that the rubber from the bushes is a bit perished.

Let me know if you're interested and then I can try to find out how much postage to the UK would be  ;)

 Think the one for hpe/Berlina has a small fitting for the headlight leveling but otherwise would be the same
