Hi, I used a 7/8" dia (22.22mm) 2mm wall thickness cold-drawn seamless tube I think its the same as you used I did not know which hole to use for the Drop rods to go in on the bottom wishbone so went for the middle I should be able to move it in or out to adjust it.
are the Drop rods made from M10 threaded rods strong enough I was looking at using a 10mm bar and threading the ends.

I might put one on the rear one day.
I think you can fit the one at the back without removing too much so that will be something to look at when I have the car on the road

I just used 10mm threaded rod for the drop links and so far its held up fine. I wondered about passing it through a tube with lock nuts either end to brace it but after 4 years including maybe 10 track days the unbraced threaded rod hasn't suffered. The cheap rose joints I used have started to go a bit loose but can't grumble.
I went for the hardest setting on the front.
I mounted my rear bar off the back of the engine frame with the levers going forwards so dead easy to fit with nothing to dismantle. I did find it worth having though as the front full stiff gave it a bit of understeer but a soft rear ARB brought it back to neutral.

It's humbling to see how much progress you've made. I've had such a busy year with work and our house renovation that my poor Libra has hardly been driven, let alone worked on!
