    Does anyone know the part numbers for the 2 bushes in the dog bone, I have got the powerflex bushes in at the moment but want to go back to the standard ones.

    Or would anyone have them lying about after they upgraded.

    I've got the whole ECS kit from rich and all three bushes are fitted to my car (which isn't advised) and the vibrations from the engine are there but there is much less engine movement, also made gearchanges better, I'd probably only fit the two large bushes for ease is doing it again though.

    Anyone local to me who is looking to upgrade want to swap their standard one for the Powerflex one.

    Audi want £66 for the complete assembly

    Might be interested in a swap, why are you changing back?

    My car's just for weekends these days so sitting in traffic isn't something I have to worry about. I'd be up for a swap, but it'll have to wait till the start of next week - car's kinda busy till then.

    Have you lived with the vibrations for a while? I found they've got a lot better sinse they were first fitted, also the engine seems to learn a slightly higher (very slightly) idle to make it less noticable on my car and I've got the full nasty set that's supposed to be harder than the powerflex ones?

    ps.. I also noticed that for my first post I totally missed your question mainly because I'm a tw@t!

    Some people over tighten the done bone bushes, this creates alot of vibration.

    Torque them correctly and they aren't that bad. Are yours looking a bit squished?

    Nope that's the problem your not supposed to over tighten the stretch bolts along the axis of the mount if that makes sense as it will effect how the mount behaves!

    When I say "torque correctly" you don't necessarily need to torque it to factory spec. You just need to go enough so it won't undo but not tighten too much.

    You'll know when you pull it apart what I mean.
