Re: Front anti roll bar d bush

If you can get the measurements for them give either powerflex or superflex a ring and buy some nylon bushes you will never need to do them again, plus they will be better and prob cheaper.

Yeah I had same thought. I emailed them a month or so back and they said if I sent a diagram and dimensions, they'd match it with their better quality bushes.
Asked on a thread if anyone knew the dimensions etc but no replies
I've not had any time to look into it fully myself and was hoping someone who'd took theirs out could help.

Re: Front anti roll bar d bush

According to one of our breathren the dimensions are:

30mm high x 50mm long x 38mm deep 18mm hole and a 4mm retaining lip for the top half of the clamp.

Can't draw on here, hope this helps.
There is a good picture on this in an earlier thread.

Buy them from silentblocks.com, this site can give you a discount if you tell them you're from England.

Re: Front anti roll bar d bush

Having done it myself, I would recommend getting the SAAB 9000 bushes (SPF1816/18) from SUPERflex and cut them to size using a template from the old bush allowing an extra 1-2 mm overall. Checking them against the brackets as you cut away surplus material. I used a Stanley knife but I'm sure there must be a better and easier method!

Once fitted, by splitting the bracket in situ, they improve the front end stability allow greater cornering speeds, and are not likely to wear out again.

Well worth the hour or so carving them to size and the cost (21 and change posted from memory).You pays yer money and takes yer choice!

Best of luck

Peat
