Will the spring pans from a TS fit my 3.0 . If I read it correctly the only difference is 3.0 bushes are rose jointed & TS are not. Is this the case that only the bushes are different & pans identical. Where should I go to buy rose jointed bushes & Powerflex bushes.I'm slightly confused about the whole thing but I hope somebody will clarify the situation for me.Thanks Lewis

The bushes on the V6 springpans are certainly rose-jointed and are the best. If your bushes are worn you can certainly fit the powerflex bushes, but they can be tricky to fit. I would highly recommend an 'experienced' specialist in fittings these if you wish to go down this route.

Certainly the Phase 1 TS cars have the non-rose jointed variety. Do not fit these arms to your V6 - they are not designed for your car. In fact, they're hardly any good for the TS cars either! The later 2.0 litre cars had the uprated rose joints as well, but I'm not sure whether these came with the JTS engines or before. Probably best to get new V6 arms for your car - very expensive though!:rolleyes:

Is it possible to just replace the rose-joint bush alone or do they come complete with the spring pan.Thanks Lewis

The bushes are well sealed in the arms. Don't believe you can purchase separately. Only way to go is to buy new arms or go the powerflex route. Powerlex are very good, but you need to get them fitted absolutely correctly otherwise problems arise.
