    Default ARB bushes

    Well after managing to get drop links changed, figured I'd do the bushes aswell, bought off euro car parts after puttin my reg in. Finally got the bush out after blood sweat and tears found out they sent the wrong size but I got it off and I couldn't see any signs of wear :/ any ideas?

    Yeah emailed euro car parts asking for a refund, and the proper bushes. Was just a bit baffle as to what exactly is making the noise, the rubber bushes were fine, bit dirty but still no signs of wear, and was sat snug in the clip, what is it that makes the crunchin noise?

    mine were fine i would just replace them, i was told the parts that could make the crunch is, droplinks, bushes, rad mounts, and the spring it might be hitting the cup that the spring sits in, does your car make the crunch?
