    Just been searching for poly bushes as the Touring bushes are shot again

    Just stumbled across these from STRONGFLEX http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E36-FULL-S...item4149f9753c

    Then these from FLO-FLEX http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Flo-fl...34Q2ec0Q2em322

    Then obviously these from POWERFLEX (Already fitted to the coupe all around and HIGHLY rated)

    http://www.powerflex.co.uk/products/...98)-203/1.html



    Who's actually heard/used Strongflex or Flo-flex before? I've never heard them mentioned before??? Look at the prices

    A20, I think Steve23002 has some experience with the FLO FLEX ones. I am sure that he has pointed someone in that direction before

    Ah, now you mention it I think you're right

    I compared front control arms and rear trailing arm items and it appears that the Flo-flex items are dearer than the Powerflex items?

    That does not seem right

    Sorry A20, I have no experience of any other bushes than Powerflex myself..

    I have powerflex in mine now because they are excellent. They fit first time no worries...

    BUT the flo flex ones are very cheap compared to powerflex. I have used the rear trailing arm bushes before and they are not much different to the powerflex ones, maybe a little bit softer, and a bit tighter to fit but for what you pay, no complaints...

    I also believe lashash has also fitted them to his coupe....

    Depends if they last.

    I got top mounts from ECP and they lasted 5 minutes. Bit more money and the GSF ones have been on for ages now.
