Suspension Components & Poly Bushes
Car: 147 1.9 JTDM Q2 (150)
Having read most of the forums about noisy suspension I have decided to do an overhaul front and back.
I am looking to replace the upper and lower arms at the front, and the track and radius arms at the back. I'm also planning on replacing the ARB links too, front and back. Ideally I would replace the anti roll bar itself, however, I think it's a bit out of my comfort zone. I've read the guides and it requires dropping the subframe..
My plan at the moment is to purchase Moog / TRW components and then replace the fitted bushes with new PowerFlex poly bushes before fitting to the car.
I have a couple of questions:
1) Is there much difference between the Moog and the TRW components? In general Moog tend to be a little more expensive, but people seem to swear by them. Does anyone have any experience?
2) Is it worth replacing all the standard bushes with PowerFlex poly bushes?
I don't thrash the car at all but the roads I use on a daily basis are pretty bad (pot holes and bumps).
I'm looking to get the best setup to maximize the time before I have to do it again!
Thanks for your time.
