both powerflex and strongflex do rear suspension bush kits for the GTV, they are huely different prices though!!!
powerflex is around £490 where as the strongflex are £155 including postage from Poland, both are on ebay..I have recently (yesterday) fitted lower control arm inner bushes to mine ,I used poweflex simply because a local supplier had availibilty and I have time retraints for an MOT re-test.
had I the time I would have done the whole rear suspension with strongflex and changed the ARB drop links whilst I was at it, and also taken the lot for powder coating...
doing the lower rears was easy compared to front wishbones (they are a pig) the hardest part was removing the old bushes which required use of a hacksaw,chisel, a very big hammer and lots of brute force and ignorance.
actual removal of track control arms was easy, 3 bolts and off ,bushes were a breeze to fit and re-fitting the arms a reversal of removal.
the only slightliy tiny issue was the N/S needs the exhaust removed from the hangers and pushed to one side to get on the inner bush bolt, and a breaker bar was required to loosen them all off as they were very tight, access is goo though but forget using a spanner or ratchet as they will not budge.
hope this helps a bit.
