    Suspension Bushes, where?

    I am wanting to replace all of the practical bushes on my suspension as creaking when over bumps.

    ARB bushes are worn and sound and feels as though they may not be the only ones so where would I get them and wht part names of them are they?

    Cheers

    powerflex do polybushes for the astra (£70 for full front set on ebay), if you measure your roll bar bushes then you could also select one from their "universal" catalogue (as they dont make them specifically.

    Otherwise is
    Front and rear wishbone bush, left and right (4 in total).
    Wishbone kingpin bush, left and right (2 in total).
    Front ARB bushes (4 in total).
    Rear beam bushes (2 in total).

    ARB drop link rods - come complete with new bushes either end

    my advice is get quality pattern (QH, FAI etc) otherwise stick with GM parts.... the cheapo ones from ebay are utter guff

    if u just want new OE rubber spec bushes then get a pair of new wishbones which come complete with 3 bushes already pressed in on each side.

    Personally I got new wishbones, pressed & burnt them out then fitted powerflex polyurethane bushes and the handling went from good to excellent with this fairly simple mod

    If they are just tired then a new pair of wishbones will sort u out - expect to pay about £25 each from a local motor factors
