    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-FR...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item33590eee31

    Powerflex, 23mm - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/A3-8L-96-03-P...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=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

    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.
