    Are they the same?

    Are the exhaust bushes the same on a GSi as on every other Astra? I wanted some Powerflex bushes when i fitted my new exhaust, but wasn't sure which ones to order. But i've just been looking on Regals and found this:

    Anyone know if they'll fit mine?

    Wouldn't waste my cash on them personally. They don't offer anything over standard rubber ones except more transmitted vibration due to them being stiffer

    Can't see why they've got 5 rubbers of two different types litsed - G's have 7 mounting points, and all the rubbers are identical

    hhmmm okfair do's, just thought i'd ask. My rubbers tend to migrate cos they're all knackered and stretched. Just thought this might help. Anyways of stopping them migrate, apart from renewing them? Tried tie wrarring them but that didn't work

    Knackered and stretched rubbers aren't helping at all, so get 7 new rubbers.

    And to stop them moving just get some petrol pipe clips and fix these to the ends of the chassis hangers, so they can't come off the ends. Don't clamp them tight up against the rubbers as some movement is needed to cope with the pipe expanding when it gets hot, but putting some copper grease on them will help with the slideyness.

    i wouldnt waste my money either as imo itl only add vibrations and they'l cause damage to the weakest link.

    the hangers have groves in to fit special clips, mine has them on anyway

    They go down to about 8mm in dia which should be easily enough to grip a chassis hanger
