Thanks Peter.

I thought that poly bushes would be more suitable for racing.

Perhaps standard V8 will be better for the uneven, potholed roads we now have to put up with?

Re: replacement front anti roll bar

Good morning all, I hope everyone is well. Sorry to drag this subject up but I am hopeful some informed advice is available. I bought a second hand GT 5/8" front antiroll bar of Ebay to replace the 9/16" one on my 1974 chrome bumper roadster. However I have just realised the replacement is from a rubber bumper GT and as a consequence the bush ends curve downwards slightly, as opposed the 'flat' one I have removed.
My question is, has anyone encountered this before and will it cause issues by fouling something under the extremes of movement?
Basically should I source one from a chrome bumper GT?
The only other suspension related mods are GT front springs and V8 bushes.

Many thanks in anticipation of any assistance.

Keep safe.

Barry

Just a follow up to my post earlier to advise the 5/8" 'angled' ARB from a rubber bumpered GT fits on a chrome bumber roadster without any issues. I also found I could re-use the 9/16" locator end stops by inserting suitably sized spacers between the two halves and fitting slightly longer bolts.

All the best.
