    Hi all, right so I've dropped my rear subframe to repair the mounting points as the drivers side front and passenger mounting points have ripped themselves away from the car.
    so I'm going to repair these and reinforce the other two.
    I've removed the old subframe bushes to replace with polybushes.
    I know you can obviously get powerflex ones on eBay @ around £35 per pair so £70 for the 4.
    Or there are some for £25 for all 4.
    Has anyone used these? Are powerflex worth over double the price.?
    Thanks John

    When I did my subframe, I thought about poly'ing the bushes, but didn't in the end, as the subframe shouldn't really move that much at all to warrant the cost of them.

    So went with OEM bushes in the end.

    The main movement is by the diff it's self !
