Bizzare Sway Bar - TD Cortina
Guys, i've just picked up a TD Cortina (250 pre crossflow) and the front left radius arm is snapped..
no worries i picked one up from a local wrecker for 30 bux
the dilemma comes when i started trying to find new bushes.. the suspension set up on the old girl is not the same as she was back in 74
it had a front sway bar conversion, which to me looks like a hack.. instead of the original sway bar that had lsway bar link arms to the top of the lower control arms and then ran under the sump. it has a sway bar that bolts onto the front of the chassis with d-clamps.. all this is normal.. but the ends of it just clamp onto the radius arms with 2 univeral 20m 'D' bushes, i've never seen anything like this.. however looking at whitelines catalogue.. it seems they have something that could be similar (hard to tell from the description)

has anyone seen this before, and if so.. is it better and original? its the only reason i can think of why someone would so this
