    Hi in the end i ordered the Superflex arb bushes front and back for a good price. Spoke to a salesman in ECP and he said that the Powerflex factory burnt down just before christmas!!! and thats why they have a 3-4 weeks delay on products..

    Hi again did my arb bushes today front anyway..Superflex sent the wrong rear bush size and was way bigger than the ones on the car sent them back for te right ones. Makes quite a bit of difference with stiffer bushes corners a lot flatter and doesn't dip as much under heavy braking..Very pleased..few pics

    Hi Mate i have standard suspension and was 23 mm front and 18 mm rear but the rear ones were way to big! not the dia that was ok but the size of the bush was to big to fit the carrier. I did check with Superflex as regards to my car before i bought them and they said they fit but the rear bush was massive compared to the standard bush. E-mailed them today and they are sending me another bush kit for for the rear marked for the e36!!! so not sure what im going to get...

    The bushes are great quality better than Powerflex quality wise i would say but it would be nice to have had the right ones first time as i had the car in bits.. the ride was way better that te standard set up anyway
