    So i decided i would try a bodge job on my anti roll bar bushes as they are crap!, i had a 1 to 1 and 1/2mil gap all the way around the anti roll bar!, and the other side wasn't much better, so i took the bushes off and wrapped the anti roll bar round and round with duct tape to fill the gap very tightly!, this is my temp fix untill i can get powerflex bushes, so hopfully it will be better on the road tomorrow!

    What temperary bodge have you done lately?

    yeh just looking for the bushes now!, want the front 24mm 1s and then i will get the backs, sounds weird but the car feels more stable in the corners already, and if that tape can do that, then the polybushes must make a big improvement?, defo want the back after the fronts if thats the case
