Does anyone happen to have a Sprint front anti roll bar link? (153735 in the Sprint parts book).The thread on my left link is worn and I can't tighten the nut up. Thought about getting my tap & die set out but there's not enough shaft to work it as it is still connected to the bar and lower wishbone. New preferred but a really good 2nd hand could do. Cheers.

Chris Witor sells his own polybushed version of these, not all that cheap, but usual Witor good quality (i've seen lesser make ones snap like carrots in short order) It's probably best for uniformity of performance to buy a pair!

One could add metal by building up weld material and then grinding & filing to the correct external diameter, before rethreading with a screw-die.
