Default 30mm Wishbone Round Bar Questions MX5 Build

I just popped to a factory across the road from my work to order a crain hoist for work.
One of the blokes chucked a length of 30mm round bar in the scrap bin so i asked if i could pinch it, he said yes, is there anything else you need.
He said taking him a cutting list for the tubes and if they have them he will get them cut for me.
Result.

My questions are. Are the 30mm round bars on all the wishbones 60mm long and are there 10 of them?

I have no access to the guide at the moment and wanted to cut them down roughly to size on the saw at work before machining them to size.

Many thanks

Andy

Sorry Andy i've just seen this - don't get on the forum much now. Yes the threaded bushes are 60mm long and 10no if you count the front uppers to.

Typical I get a reply when I haven't got my guide again!
Thanks for the reply.
Am I correct in thinking that the lower wishbone adjusters are 25mm or are they 30 as well?
I nearly cut all my 30mm steel then had a panic so refrained!

Thanks again

Andy
