    I have to renew alot of my suspension components such as the front wishbones, drop links, track rod ends and was wondering while I`m there should I just change to powerflex bushings, well the ones that are available for the car? What effect will this have on the handling of the car, I dont mind it being tight but dont want it to crash and bang about as its an everyday car. Whats the verdict?

    As above, I wouldn't ever think about chaning bushes that are worn with rubber ones if I could get a polly option!

    The stock rubber ones will fall apart again after a few 10,000 miles!!

    All the ones listed from Powerflex are here: Powerflex Shop

    As above they do not give you a 'harsh' ride but they make a massive difference in the way the car feels!

    Safest bet is to get under there and measure them. The standard purple compound are a good upgrade for a road car. You'll notice a harsher ride more if you were to fit naff springs or something like that than fitting poly bushes.
