    Indeed, What sort of car?

    As Shane said, if its a hydraulic Cit, it'd be difficult for the rear bar to be missing and be able to drive the car.
    Of course, if its an A-series.... why would you want one? going racing?
    Wouldn't all other modern Cits have one already?
    If its not a Cit...... why ask for a Citman to advise?

    Don't go for a bar-less trip, please. The roll bar has a couple of functions.
    1. It is where the body height is detected - see sensor below:

    2. The hydraulic circuit connects the wheels, so it has no anti-roll, unlike springs which can resist. The bar resists body roll.

    It's a standard bar, except for that sensor, which needs to be correct.

    So NSW Froggers,

    Any leads on competent Peugeot/Cit mechanics around Temora - maybe Wagga, Cootamundra area even Canberra?

    Cheers, Ken W

    Tom has expressed some views on Wagga etc places. Dealers are at Wagga, Albury, Canberra and Moss Vale. Further away are Sydney area and Wollongong, and none are cheap. All the independent places I know are around Sydney.
