Power flex bushes upgrades
« on: August 04, 2019, 06:59:58 PM »
Hey guys
I’m looking to overhaul suspension and bushes. Going with OEM Bilstein shocks as I have 30mm H&R springs. I also want to look to upgrade the bushes as they are original and @ 130k probably past their best!!! I’m aware of the anti lift kit and will fit this, but can you advise what other main and important bushes should be changed?

TIA
Louie

The ARB will need attention after 130000 miles. When you do the anti lift bush Id be doing the smaller front bush and ball joint too. I replaced the complete wishbone with bushes and ball joint only for the meyle bushes to give up after less than a year.
  I love powerflex, totally transformed my chassis along with porsche brakes and soft rainsport tyres.
brakes, rims, hatch, handle, head unit, rust rust and more rust needing attention

I've still got these available if you're interested?

I can also take the bushes out and sell separately. Doesn't say on there but the bushes are new.
