these bushes are designed to limit rearward motion under braking
the chamfer goes into the lollipop from the front (of the car)
leaving them in a bucket of very hot water can ease fitting (the black part)
If anyone has fitted Powerflex bushes to a vehicle that has other faulty suspension components then they will emphasise the fault.
If you fit them to a vehicle that's suspension that is in sound condition then it will emphasise this also. The ride should feel more responsive and not make any unusual noises. If it does then it is more than likely due to failure of another component.
my wishbone bushes are powerflex and the car feels very sure and responsive in turns,i have powerflexed all my cars, i swear by 'em!!
Just about to fit some lowering springs to my E46 M3 and going to do the bushes at the same time... the only ones i can find is this kit:
POWERFLEX SUSPENSION BUSHES KIT BMW E46 3 SERIES M3 330
but this seems to much surely? I only want to replace the ones that E46's tend to have a common weakness on... can anyone point me in the right direction or have a link i can order them from?
Im useless when it comes to this stuff so any advice would be much appreciated!!!
PFF5-4601M3 is for M3 Models which are 60mm
Nice one mate... do i need all of them or are there certain ones which are a common weakness on the E46 which i should look to replace... im doind it out preference rather than necessity!
It's fine to do them in pairs and as and when they require replacement
The front lower control arm bushes and rear trailing arm bushes should be replaced first as these are the weakest points
Number 1 and number 3 in the diagram
lets us know how easily you found the fitting. And after you have had a run with them fitted.
