    Evening all

    I want to pick the brain of those who have changed their ARB bushes on the rear.

    I have a set from C3BMW of Supaflex bushes (apparentl better than powerflex). I have put them next to the OEM bushes and there is a massive size difference. The diameter of the hole seems right, but the amount of rubber is way too much. I was wondering if there may be different sizes, or whether the ones I have are for an M3?

    I have been speaking to Simon at C3 and he isnt sure either so he is ordering some Powerflex to see what they are like.

    Anyone got any ideas? Pic below.

    Cheers
    Stan

    Thats what I have, but theyre too big! As I said above the hole is the correct diameter but the bush is physically too big.

    In which case, I would wait for those Powerflex bushes. They hardly make mistakes in bush sizing .
