Uprated Anti Roll Bars?

Post by daveyheats » Wed Feb 23, 2022 1:05 pm

Afternoon all.
My roll bars are quite heavily corroded / thinning under where the bushes were, so I'm in need of replacements.

Just wondering if anyone had fitted one of these uprated roll bars, and if so, are they any good?

upgrading anti roll bars make a huge difference along with a lower strut brace
however i would get a branded one and also change the clamps and fittings as they will be corroded too and liable to snap with the new forces applied by the thicker roll bars


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!
