    Hi guys,

    A very hesitant post. Recently got Powerflex bushes installed on my wishbones (requested due to their reputation). Was changing the wheels today and noticed one of the set is red (apologies for the poor photo), the front set are purple.

    I know i'm probably being picky, but I like to know what's what. Powerflex or cheaper brand? I'm sure a poly bush is a poly bush and everything (though some of the other brands have a shoddy rep) but just curious.

    Cheers ;)

    Powerflex should be black outer and purple inner.

    Whoever puts milk and sugar in red bush is a philistine! Haha.

    I always thought Powerflex did red bushes for race-spec bits?

    I think the race spec Powerflex stuff is all black. Some other cheaper brands like Strongflex are red though, and get bashed a fair bit on other forums for ****ty compounds.
