    Anyone fitted Powerflex bushes on a mk4?

    I fitted my coilovers last sunday and although im over the moon with the suspension kit ive got a bit of a problem. I have replaced anti roll bar links and ive ordered new steering ends.

    But I had a bit of a arse clentching moment, I took a long sweeping bend at around 50-60mph which is more than ok on this bit of road. And Ive done it loads before having the suspension done.

    However the car kinda steered/ rolled right while I was in a left hand turn
    Other than this incident the car drives and handles fine.

    I know I need to get the Wheel alignment done, which maybe causing the problem, specially as the car is lowered 120mm on the front and 60mm on the rear.

    The problem I have been told could be down to the wishbone bushes?
    So I dont know whats best to do, just replace the standard wishbones or re-bush the arms I have using powerflex parts. It it a worth while upgrade and how easy are they to fit?

    Any advise would be great

    Nobody fitted the powerflex bushes?
    Im very surprised

    But ive managed to solve 95% of the problem by fitting new bearings to the top hat on the suspension then had it all alined by the pro's
