Bush availability


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm doing a complete restoration on MK1 Cav, I have purchased a "complete" poly bush kit but doesn't come with the front X-member trailing arm to chassis bushes! These are available from other manufacturers but the fact that they don't come with the outer metal sleeve bothers me as its not a solid tube that it fits in to.

Can anyone vouch for these sleeveless poly bushes for the front trailing arms or help where to get OEM rubber replacements, cheers.

I got my Super Pro Poly Bush kit from RetroPower, which was complete front and rear set up. Not 100% sure on the make up of the bush in question (Metal/Sleeve or not) as I fitted them 6 years ago, but when I did drive it, the car was solid. I will be replacing the bolts in the front axle trailing arms soon so it might jog my memory, as I have noticed I have fitted 8.8 grade bolts instead of the 10.9 Grade that should be fitted. :(

Yeah the complete set I bought which has the front trailing arm ones missing is Super Pro, I called them and asked where they were and said they don't do them I said well its not a "complete set" then is it!?
