The rear suspension arms are the same across the Falcon and Fairlane chassis.

I got mine from an ebay store that sold replacement arms. Don't remember the store name, or how much they were, it was a while ago now.
I just messaged them and asked if they did EL Tickford upper trailing arms.

I meant that he didn't need to find Tickford arms to suit an NL, as the Tickford arms for a falcon will suit.

Yes.
I refer to them as Tickford upper arms, because they were also used in other vehicles that were fitted with the Tickford 'sports' suspension.
