    Follwed by a Stainless Steel Centre, to which a little pressure was applied to get it onto the wishbone.

    The Anti-Roll Bar bushes needed a little work, in the name of a Stanley, to remove a few minor imperfections in my eyes, but they were a direct replacement.

    The Engine Mounts in the kit were also a direct bolt-on replacement.

    I think the whole job only took around an hour, but I did have the entire front end apart at the time for an engine swap, which made things a whole lot easier!

    I'm looking to replace all the bushes in my car, as it's getting to feel a bit horrendous driving around.

    Quick question,

    How do I know which will fit my e36 316i?
    Also, my car currently has rear drums which I plan to swap to discs in the near future... Will I need to change bushes when I do so, or will the same ones be okay to stay?

    Sorry, really got no clue when it comes to bushes.
    I'm talking PowerFlex, as these seem to have best reviews on here. So I'll trust the forum!

    Also, found this website where Poweflex bushes are cheaper than the link posted by RYM.

    Powerflex bushes are very rare at the moment. Those that do have them in stock have inflated their prices somewhat too.
