    HD Escort mk1 anti roll bar options?

    Thinking of going with a stiffer ARB. But the matter of fact is I'm feeling quite lazy. Anyone know of any easy solutions?

    Is the twink ARB the stiffest STD ARB availabele? Anyone make a stiffer one?

    Anyone know of a comprehensive Blade type ARB for the mk1?

    Its always an option to go for a stiffer springs instead.

    I have one allready. But would like to try a stiffer nose. That pretty much leaves me the stiffer sprongs or the blade type ARB.
    Would not like to risk the good road hold during braking.

    The car feels perfectly ballanced but looking pictures like the one below makes me think I should atleast try stiffening the nose.

    I'll re measure my ARB and go for the twink one if its any bigger. Or go for the twin ARB. Thats a good idea.
