Never had a problem with them and would recommend them. The GTV boys use them alot as well without an issue. Even if they lasted half the time of the origional bushes you would still be quids in. Most people just cannot warrent spending best part of 400 on suspension parts, before you have tackled the bottom bearing, when you can powerflex for just over 100.
