    Hi guys im going to change my anti roll bar bushings front and rear my car is a 323i saloon and I believe the sizes are 15mm rear and 21.5mm front for the bushings. Do I go with standard rubber bushes or go for a polyurethene bush? Thanks

    Powerflex will outlast the car and to save you getting under the car try ringing your local BMW dealers as their parts dept.
    will have the sizes of the factory fitted anti roll bars and bushes on the computer

    Great idea, Ill give the dealers a call and go from there. I take it these bushes are as easy as unbolting the support they sit it swapping them over on the bar and bolting it back on?
