Antiroll bar modifcations(frount)

Have done this before on other cars just done it 2 my 155.
My antiroll bar drop links passed MOT just a wk ago!! , rubbers looked perished if you got a long bar you could see play.
new drop links are 10 ea, I've fitted sperical bearings(rose joints)as in race cars for 13 ea. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! no play at all, frount end seems stiffer , no dive under heavy breaking!!
Got12mm id same as sholder on ar bar bearings from local engineering supply company, 12mm threaded bar 2 screw into bottom of bearing,thick washers+ nyloc nuts 12mm.
Made lenght of link adjustable using nuts set 15mm longer (mod on RS2000's was 2 drop bar 25mm increeced antidive) used washers +made up small spacer 10mm 2 bolt through wishbones doing away with rubbers on this also.slid a length of bicicle inner tube onto arbar 2 use as a gaiter pulled over bearing secured with tie wraps loads of grease inside. assemble + make sure everything well tight, then Enjoy!!! ...narlo.

Sperical bearings(rosejoints) are like a metal ball with ahole drilled through in a metal bearing eye, will try + find a link 2. competition cars use them as there is no rubber so no play.
if you get a long bar/screwdriver between ARbar + wishbone +pry you will see movement in the rubbers on mine now there is no play at all, so all load placed upon bar is transfered into bar + not taking play up in rubbers.
with bearings,nylocnuts,washers came 2 25, can honestly say best 25 i've spent on a car. although condition of droplinks unknown but did pass MOT over wk ago!!

Anyone know if there is interchangeability with the 75. If so you can use the parts from the factory used on the SZ/RZ which are rose jointed as standard.
