Hi, was wondering if someone can please explain to me what and where is the front suspension tie bar rail in a Ford Festiva?

As I was reading an article that said this should be checked before purchase, as this part of the car is made out of soft steel and any deformation can have an adverse effect on the way the car drives.

So any help in regards to this will be greatly appreciated.

Oh yes and if anyone is interested in reading this article for themselves they can do so at this address:

Thanks.

It is a Front antisway bar come strut bar. The bushes in the lower control arm usually perish, and need replacing.
