    get those poly bushes in there, then you will see how flimsy and "comfy" the std bush is.

    ummm..

    well there are differing descrptions of the suspension on these cars.

    basically there are 4 arms

    two upper and two lower..

    usually the control arm is refered to as the back lower arm..

    you can just buy the one arm and it comes complete

    thats what i'm going to be changin on mine, the back lower arms. got a bit of play in them. Car likes to wander a bit at the moment.
    I have no play in any of the other bushes.

    Just out of interest. what in terms of bushes etc are at the rear?
