Desperately need to replace my front wishbone bushes, again.
Any recommendations regarding fitting of powerflex.

Probably best upgrade for 159 so far

Any other recommendations?
Sorry if you misunderstood, I said people don't usually book that far in advance and I was loading up my diary and you disappeared

I have no issue with booking early

Those Powerflex bushes are a great upgrade, particularly with Autolusso's wheel alignment. You won't regret it.

fitted mine myself a bit of a pain to be honest
it's the set up that's a pain to align propper with not alot of room for adjustment under the wheel arch

if your not far from Autolusso see

I've had powerflex bushes installed on my 08 2.4 (19" rims) since Dec13. A few checks (and tweaks) on the alignment at 500 mile intervals and all is well. Excessive (inside edge) front tyre wear seems to be cured; steering and handling seem more precise; a few squeaks going over speed bumps, but a small price to pay v's new tyres every 7k miles!

Chick at CM Garage EK supplied and fitted the bushes.
