Rose joint, Rod end bearings, Spheric bearings et al. 
There are original top arms that are modded with Rose joints, as per original 400.

If I am honest, if I was going to mess about in such a manner, I would want to use a different stub axle too, maybe off an MX5.

I was thinking of going with something like this for when fitting a SAAB lump to give extra clearance and help with rack positioning. I also considered a laser cut plate type that needs seem welding, but the tubular setup seems far simpler, even if it uses a double tube for smaller diameter.

Miles off this though, but interesting to see ones already made up.
