Anyone poly bushed their GiGi? I am thinking of doing mine when one of the current OEU ones fails (shes a little loose on the right rear atm). I have been looking at the british made Duraflex 80A bushes. I dont want to go to hard on the ride, but want a definite fit and forget...
I'm planning a full suspension rebuild/replace and I have most Bushes (poly) from a previous project that I never got round to fitting ........... My Standard GT 1.9jtd was written off 6-months ago
Looking to buy set of poly ARB bushes to fit onto my Q2 Spec 1.9JTD (my...
Has anybody used the poly mounting inserts sold by eb spares. I find my spider gearstick moves a fair bit on acceleration and deceleration and presumably these would stop this. I've had a quick look underneath and the mounting doesn't look obviously worn. Would stiffening up the gearbox support...
So recently have been experiencing knocking from the front of my chassis when driving slowly over slightly rough road surfaces etc.. And quite frankly its driving me nuts. Replaced nearly everything except the lower wishbone bushes. And i am pretty dam sure they are shot. Never :censored: ends...
While being bored and been made to have my hair cut by wife , i decided to buy a full poly bush kit. wondered if any of you guys have had one of these, but seemed cheaper to buy this then buying them separate.

Having fitted a couple of Superflex bushes to the Fiat 500 rear dampers I've had a look at their website and that have a good selection for the GTV (and other Alfa Romeos). Worth look.
Fitted a couple of bushes from Superflex to the Fiat 500 dampers at the rear. No problems at all. Saw on their website they do rather more for Alfa Romeos than I previously thought. Worth having a look at.

Anyone recommend where to get rear bushes for Spider. Mine are on way out so going to replace. Friendly mechanic also suggests that it is possible to buy a full set as a pack, is this worth it?
PS this is a 1999 T reg 916 Spider
Just getting my hands on a Fk Koni fully adjustable suspension kit for my spider. Looking forward to getting my hands dirty.
Just wondering what people think, should i be looking at a full poly bush change whilst I'm there?
Pretty decent priced full kits on eBay.
Got TRW axial/tie rods for 156.
Would love to know what the yellow poly washer and metal washer that slightly encapsulates one side and edge of poly washer.
Myself and experienced friend changed one side and left them out as the one fitted from factory didn't have them.
They look like they...
I bought some Autolusso Bushes 6 months ago. Ned (whom I've come to know isn't the most patient of guys at times) said the e-mail I sent him, about crap poly bushes that squeak after 8 weeks, was too long to read... And to ring him. :rolleyes: :lol:
I rang the brusque southern wide-boy...

1 x panhard rod...

Before I bought the car, the lad who sold it to be put in poly bushes in the ARB. Since day one there has been a squeeky scruchy noise over ramps.
I've replaced both lower wishbones, both drop links and both upper arms (one by...
I get some clacks on my suspension - I believe my bushes are worn. Should I get powerflex bushes or other suggestions?
