    Just wondering if anyone has changed the front bushes on their car to the powerflex ones??

    I'm gettign a strange knocking noise from the front drivers side everytime i go over the slightest bump - have been told that its the bushes, but how do you identify which one is causing it and how easy are they to change??

    Thinking/probably am going to upgrade mine in a few weeks, along with KW V2 coilovers.

    Any tips from anyone on changing bushes would be well received here!

    the only bushes avalible from power flex are the lower rear arm, and the upper inner bushes, both sets fit with a little modifiying, i only fitted the lower rear arm ones as the ride got really harsh with the top one fitted.

    I've got a set of Powerflex bushes on order now so I shall have to post up when I have gotten round to fitting them.

    I went for the upper control arm bushes and the lower shock mount bush, I thought I'd install them along with the KW V2 coilovers.

    makesure you grind the outer corner of the bushes round before fitting them, the fit is really tight and they end up spliting if you dont.
