    Ebay front ARB bushes

    Hi guys.

    My car squeeks quite a lot from the front (especially when it's warm). A garage told me that it's almost certainly the front anti-roll bar bushes.

    I was thinking of doing it myself so had a look on ebay and came across the following:

    Cheapo, 21mm - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-TT-FRO...item33590eee31

    Powerflex, 23mm - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/A3-8L-96-03-Po...item1c106bbeb7

    Firstly, what size do I need - 21mm or 23mm? My car is a 2001 A3 1.8t.

    Secondly, how can they justify the huge difference in price?!

    Thanks!

    its like when you want to justify the differnce in price between any brand name vs a cheap non named ones.
    Powerflex are known for their bushings...its more sporty and i think will make your ride stiffer. It will last longer i think too.

    as for the size i am not sure what your car uses...but i am sure it is not 21 nor 23! it must be 16 or something similar in the front and maybe 14 in the rear

    Why not buy these?

    I bought them and they worked fine. Altho because the ARB was humping the driveshaft, i ended up replacing the who ARB with a whiteline one so didnt need them in the end.

    Halo performance will supply the ARB bushes by super pro for 35 front & rears. If yours squeak just spray them with lube & coat in grease.
