    After the last track day, I think its about time to change the suspension bushes to stop the instability under breaking, plus I have noticed uneven tyre wear on the front. I wanted to hear from anyone who has fitted powerflex poly bushed or similar...was it an improvement and did you do it yourself and how easy was it to do? My car has already been lowered with springs only- the shocks look standard.
    What the hell?

    Ive used poly bushes on my 325i. Ive not done the front end yet but replaced my rear trailing arm bushes and they made a big difference
    They fitted straight away and caused me no problems.
    Ive heard that the front control arm rear lollipop bushes can be a pain to get in the carriers but all the rest should be straight forward fit.
    I highly reccomend them and i know quite a few members on here use them too.

    Track use

    Polyurethane bushes and uprated anti roll bars are must have items.

    I use Powerflex and Eibach and cannot rate the setup highly enough. This combined with H&R coilovers works a treat

    the front bushes come in 2 parts and the outer bit that goes in the lollipop is a pita to fit...best bet is a good soak in close to boiling water before you try and push them in
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    if your having difficulty putting the front poly bushes in (lollipop), put the bush on a jack, and the lollipop metal ring against the under side of the car and jack it up.push it in to get it stared and then stand on it and it pops in.
    make sure you put them in front the correct way as i put 1 in the wrong way.
    5 mins to put in, about 90 min to get it out.

    Big thank you for all the posts. I will go ahead and fit a complete set, along with new track rod ends. I will have to wait a bit longer to up grade to coilovers- funny though as I was going for H&R V2 and one of you guys mentioned this set up- its height adjustable witch is best of both worlds
    What the hell?
