    Unhappy rear torsion beam link rubbers.

    Are these the bushes for the torsion beam and trailing arms??
    Where is the best place to buy them as nowhere locally seems to stock them?
    any help would be great

    You mean the rubber bushes that are in the 'pivot' where the rear beam is mounted to the chassis? vx is the only place to get them afaik. They're a pain to remove and replace. brute force will get the old ones out. i done mine as i replaced the rear beam, i think they were about 40-50 for the pair. took the beam and new bushes to a local garage that had a hydraulic press and paid 20quid to have them fitted and i fitted the new beam myself. if they're not perished, i'd leave them. or get another rear beam from a breaker, mine cost 30quid. hth

    Yeah i'm pretty sure of that. searched for uprated ones but no luck. my local motor factors couldn't source them tho they got me decent lower arms, droplinks and track rod ends. they even got me a track control arm which suprised me. get a haynes manual if you don't have one as the beam needs to be at a certain height before you tighten the bolts. oh and replace the bolts when you do them as they are stretch bolts and shouldn't be re-used. these are vx only too. I'll see if i can find the receipt for the part numbers if you want them.
