    Yes... its stiffer and will transmit vibrations from the engine... if its brand new bush they settle down after a while... if its a previously owned one then it may settle down a bit more but by design vibrations are to be expected...

    Yes that is a common issue. What colour bush did you go for? Lots of people go for the yellow one and find vibrations in the cabin too much and revert to the red diesel mount which is an uprated item with minimal vibrations. This is what I have and can vouch for it.

    I changed mine probably a year ago now to the red one and it feels almost like OEM now.

    Found somewhere that it only needs 12lb of torque to do it up. Followed this advice with my yellow Powerflex bush and there has been absolutely no extra vibration! Passed this on to someone else, and they've had the same experience.

    The red one alone didn't add and extra vibration to mine. The harder purple front one will probably be what is introducing the vibes.
