Post by: XxMK5xX on March 15, 2019, 11:57:42 AM
Hiya,

Anyone changed the front rear wishbone bushes with 'powerflex'?

Is it a easy job?, Benefits?

I not 'powerflex', anyone used any other?

Cheers  :popcornsoda:

Powerflex might be a good choice as the Superpro alk I had fitted did not change the castor from stock.

Might be cheaper to press in S3 bushes to your existing console housings.  You shouldn't need an alignment afterwards either as long as everything goes back they way it came off.  They're an uprated version of the MK5 bush.  Darkside Developments sell them  :happy2:

You will need to replace every bolt that comes off I'm afraid.  Gets expensive.

Thanks Again
