I thought it would be too bumpy/more cabin & dash shake so thought a refresh would be fine.


....No, just 2 poly wishbone arm bushes are not going to have such an effect but will better balance and better spread the stresses when a WALK or SALK is fitted.

It's front engine mounts which can add very minor vibrations. Bumpy or bouncy suspension is due to an amateur or incorrect setup, often when people slam it down too low just for looks. I have full poly bushes, WALK, engine mounts and get no "shake". It's nice and firm and responsive but never harsh. One of my best mates is an ex-biker and has lots of metal bits etc in his legs and so is prone to feel any discomfort - He frequently rides passenger in my car and enjoys a spirited drive on A and B-road rollercoasters without discomfort.

Has anybody just fitted these as an alternative to the WALK KIT/Superpro WALK KIT

They just replace the original bushes in the OE mounts.

How do you make sure they are orientated correctly as they are concentric?

Missed out on the group buy :sad1:

Just interested as they fit in the oe carriers (can't think of a word to describe them) and are cheaper than buying the superpro walk.

PM'd Alex yesterday about the superpro walk kit before I realised you could just buy the inserts, waiting for him to get back to me.

Resurrecting the thread...partly as I'm torn between the SuperPro ALK as a stand alone, and also then thinking that having the rear wishbone bush changed to poly at the same time is the future proofing? I'm assuming this is what people are still thinking to the be the most durable and consistent set up?

I don't believe that the rear bushes are anywhere near as mobile as the fronts. A decent ARB set (if you don't have them already) will probably give you more of a improvement.
