Hello, the rear wishbone bushes on my 1.6 cr are shagged after only 6500 miles. Is this a common fault, has anyone else had the same experience? does anyone know if the solid bushes from the mk1 leon cupra fit the mk5 ibiza wishbone.
Hi Damian, how do you rate the Powerflex front wishbone, rear bushes on the LCR? Mine are on their way out so need replacing but I wonder what benefits these will bring? Alternately, will they negatively affect the car in any way, I know Powerflex bushes are renound for being really hard...
My 02 1.2 is squeaking horribly and needs new front Bushes (I think the roll bar bushes, but not certain)..

Hi, i have decided to uprate the dogbone mount on my lcr. Have been reading about it and some people have just replaced the bushes for polybushes saying that this gives the same gains. Is it necesary to uprate the whole mount, or can i just uprate the bushes for the gains i am after? Also where...

Hi all, this sounds like a worn bush to me but i'll pick your brains anyway.
When driving over uneven road, I get this knocking sound from the N/S/F suspension as the car rumbles over it. The sound is as rapid as the car goes over the knobbles in the road. I am ruling out the shock absorber...
I have a 130 sport 53 reg.
I've been looking into the bushes issue with the mk4 for some time and have a few specific questions. I am going to get the wishbone bushes replaced with the cupra ones and thought i'd get the others done at the same time.

Hi all, please go easy on me I know nothing about cars.
A bit of background, 6 months ago I put 4 new tyres on my Seat 1.9 TDI FR 06 and put it through MOT using seat specialists in Cardiff just before the warranty was due to expire. All was well and good no issues.
5000 miles later Just...
Got the Ibiza TDI FR, 2005 plate, got the bushes changed to the cupra ones on tuesday and they changed the oil and filter for me at the same time. Now, it feels different when driving, not in a good way. Before it went in, i could drive it at 30mph in 5th gear or 40 in 6th with no problems at...

Just recently after having my track rod replaced the garage mentioned that my bushes were pretty worn & recently i can hear the play in the suspension because of them whilst driving.
But my question to you, do i go for powerflex bushed all round (£100, arb, frt/rr bushes on frt wishbones)...
