    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 .

    That looks like a home brew to me. The Sierra rear ARB, when fitted connects via a couple of short drop links with rubber grommets, that push over a ball ended spigot on the top of the rear trailing arms. There are body mounts under the rear load space floor. As the Cabrio / Hunter has such good neutral handling I would expect a rear ARB to make it inclined to be rather tail happy? If you suffer from this I would just remove it. Peter.

    My Cabrio does have the rear ARB fitted, see photo. It was on the car when I acquired it and, as it didn't seem to cause an obvious problem, I left it on. Its a much smaller diameter than the front one so I guess its impact is fairly low. A word of caution if you do fit one. On one side of mine there was a larger rubber washer between the ARB mount and the bottom of the rear suspension arm which had blocked a small drainage hole where the bottom of the spring is located. As a result the well into which the spring fits was full of water and the bottom of the spring was quite rusty. Drilled another hole and problem solved.

    You have the exact same set up as me and i need to replace both mountings that are going through the hole at the base of the spring. but i need to know what there called and the vehicle there 0ff. ive searched and searched i can remember seeing similar in the past but for the life of me cant remember.
    the rubbers on the mount are almost gone very little left of them.

    Sorry to be negative, but that anti roll bar set up looks a bit exposed and easily damaged to me. I would be trying to find a solution that mounts the bar above the trailing arms as in the original Sierra.
