    Super Pro bushes are meant to be very good

    I guess you could buy them singularly then change them as you go along and see if it improves the ride,what springs have you got ?

    Make sure that a spring isn't broke first

    could possibly be that that is making rattly noise,I've been wanting a different set up for a while now as the ride does me in its good when hooning about but horrific on a commute to work
