powerflex wishbone bushes...?
I have some powerflex poly wisbone bushes fitted to my car (amongst all the others being powerflex aswell).
Upon the car being inspected today for some other random issue it was suffering... my mechanic noticed that the powerflex wishbone bushes had started to wear already!
He only fitted them 2-3000 miles ago!
Should they start to wear this fast?
When i say 'wear', i mean, on the driverside bush the top part has started to wear away.
Could this be down the excessive lowering of the car or some other reason?
(the car was fitted with a brand new FK/Koni coilover kit at the same time as the bushes were fitted).
Im just curious if this is a common problem or if it could be down to something else?
He told me about how the front wishbones are the same as each other, just that depending on what side of the car the wishbone needes to be fitted to, you just flip it over 180 degrees.
So then one bush goes in from the top & the other side goes in from the bottom, everyone following yet? LoL
So, both wishbones & wishbone bushes are exactly the same, just one side is flipped over 180 degrees in comparisson with the other.
