Hi,
So i finally got a set of poly bushes for the capri.But when i went to fit them the outside of the bush was too small for the bracket even though the center hole was correct for the bar.
I thought all the bushes had the same outer dimentions.
Anyone know if this is true?

Cheers :(

Thanks for the reply mfw898y,
might have to agree about the ford built in extra :lol:

Somebody was telling me about the steering rack giving faults and that you can use washers to tighten this up.
So i'll be checking into that.

Anti roll bar bush.

Hi,
Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but i need to get a set of bushes for my anti roll bar and i've noticed the come in various sizes like 19mm, 24mm.
Question is what is this measurement?
Is it the with of the bush or the hole in the center?

Any help?


Cheers

Sorry,
Forgot to check this post in a while.
The scimitar is good fun, I remember the brother use to have one.
I always thought the footwell was strange the way you have to lower yourself into it.
