Hmmm, maybe you should get some specially machined out of summat a tad stronger then, or perhaps get some new ones chemically hardened.

it's got to be possible to get a competition set made up surely? have a chat with TJM?
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

sorry been a bit slow.

are you sure the bar has full movement? i suspect the bar is coming to a stop on something and the rest of the suspension travel is being taken up by the links.

making them stronger will transfer the failure to something else such as the bar itself.

on the loose it is quite common to remove the bar, it should make the car a bit less prone to understeer - friend of mine removed his firenza a/r bar for everything. personally i'm adding one at the rear just to see what it does.

I'm seeking enlightenment for the north american Chevetters... none of the suspension bits I'm familiar look like that... what bits are these?
