Cheers Dogwood,
Do you know which one to pick, it has far too many abbreviations

CFS CEW CHB etc.

Does anybody know what these mean, the book does not state other than seamless.

Hmmmm, Good question.
I'm afraid I don't know the answer, sorry.
I just phoned them and told them what I wanted and what I was doing.
It was over a year ago so can't remember the answer.
Did find them very helpfull though.

Just had a look on their site.
If you click "Full Range" it takes you into a page that details the tubes.
It looks like you want CFS cold drawn seamless.

Cheers Guys that's the 20mm, The drawing shows 25mm for front lower wishbones.

Can it be reduced to 20mm or would it be too weak?

Sorry to put a damper on that but I'm sure 'happyjo' was asking for front lower wishbone tubing which last time I checked was 25mm or 1" OD and that is 20mm OD might it not be alittle tight for the wishbone plate from Mr. Oxley Rogue Eng. on ebay? Happyjo if you want the correct tubing for the wishbones PM me and I will sort you a price for either just tube supply or fully profile cut tubes on the lathe.

You're not wrong, he was. Sorry got myself all exited.
Then I'll go back to my original suggestion.
