    pretty sure i just put my powerflex front ARB bushes in upside down :S

    So, whipped my old front ARB bushes off today (I say whipped, was a pain...). They had come away from the plastic collars entirely, so good that I did them. Anyway, I took them off and noted the way up they went, and mine were "pointy" side up; so I put my powerflex ones in pointy side up too....

    Then, checked elsawin when i got home just to double check the torque settings for my peace of mind....and saw a diagram that shows the "pointy" bit pointing down....S**t....should I be worried? Should I take them off again and turn them round?

    Cheers,
    Aran

    mine are in pointy side up as yours, this is how the originals came out and if you try and put them in the other way they dont fit properly so you should be all fine. Mine is an APY engine code incase they changed it when going facelift
