    cut the original tie bars in half and add threaded bar in the middle with nuts to lock it in place when in the correct position....thats the basics of whats needed Dan,let your Dad workout the dimensions

    It's not just a threaded bar you need...it's a nut section with a RH thread one side and a LH thread the other (with the correct LH and RH half-nut locknuts - or full size locknuts I suppose, if you prefer), with the ends of the cut-in-half tie bars threaded (one RH and one LH) and shortened by the width of the nut + 2 half nuts.

    This way you can adjust the bar on the car by loosening the locknuts and turning the nut section with a spanner.

    not using a LH + RH thread will mean you have to take the bar off one end to adjust it - nightmare!

    It's not hard to do, engineering wise, if you have the skills, the kit and faith that you've made them strong enough, 'cos if they break you crash.

    Add into the cost poly bushes...and is it worth it over buying TUV approved bars?
