    Re: Rear anti roll bar mount

    I'm still curious as to the vehicle that donated the anti roll bar. Build manual states that it's not required in original form.

    Re: Rear anti roll bar mount

    I take it this is on Cabrio ? If so it's pretty certain it comes from Ford Sierra. I don't think many Cabrio 's are fitted with the rear anti roll bar .

    Re: Steering Wheel Alignment

    Surely the reference by the manual refers to the 'rack' being centred relative to the rack body, and nothing else. That's always been my interpretation and it's worked for me.
