Suspension bushes

Post by Morphman »

Hi guys,

Another question, I'm going to replace all the suspension bushes on my car over the coming months.
What bushes do you recommend and where to buy them?
The suspension is stock so I have no adjustability of the shocks etc

Poly bush kit from TwosRus. Might want to check ball joints and grease rear trailing arm spherical bearing at same time. New bushes will transform handling.

Shipping from the states shouldn't be too bad... Just got a few pipes shipped across for $55, which i think is 10p? (I may be a bit out ;) )

It does depend on what shipping company is used, the value and how quickly you want your parts.

Always a good idea to buy from the uk if you can though just in case of any issues, seem to have a few suppliers out there now.
There is no "it cant be done" only "I cant do it!"

Thanks guys, the prothane ones look like the best value but may not be the best quality. About 100 dollars direct from prothane but shipping is more although I could use a us address but will be hit for customs.....

Took out the control arms today, look a bit different than what I thought. The front mount is different than the bushes I have...
