    going to upgrade the bushes on the car as i have heard nothing but good reviews about powerflex bushes!!

    opinion seems to be that they greatly improve handling, obv easiest way it to buy a whole kit do all the bushes but seens to be 150 for a kit so not cheap!!

    Is there certain bushes that you can replace that will make the difference in the handling aspect??
    rather than buying whole kit, much do these parts cost??

    what are the best bushes to replace cheers guys!

    ebay the best bet to buy the bushes??

    RTAB's,ARB's front and rear and lollypop bushes Not really neccessary to change the subframe bushes unless they're knackered.

    You can get them from EuroCarParts....They're not listed on their website but I got the part numbers from the powerflex site and took them with me to ECP and picked them up


    Can you please also post in the correct forums with the correct thread titles....You'd think with 339 posts to your name you would get it right

    On another note...as this is similar to your other thread...You can fit E30 wishbones...I fitted E30 Lemforder ones from ECP £50.70 each and gives a more direct feel of the steering,nice upgrade to consider and cheaper than the E36 wishbones too
