    Unhappy Play in front suspension

    Just had new tyres fitted to the front of my car as the Yoko's I had on had worn down to almost nothing, but only on the outer shoulder.

    I asked the guys where I had them fitted to do the tracking and camber adjustment as I thought the guy who'd done this initially had set the camber up wrong.

    It turns out that there is loads of play in the bush at the top of the suspension strut. When I fitted my coilovers I just used the bush off the standard shock which fitted quite nicely but when the guy showed me today it was moving side to side by quite a bit.

    Is there an uprated option for the strut top bush, I looked on the FK and powerflex sites and found nothing, or is it just better to get another standard one?

    Anyone? Please, I need to get parts ordered and fitted so I don't kill this new set of tyres so quickly
