    Question What bushes do I need?

    I'm looking to renew the suspention bushes on my 03 2.0T Elegance because it's well tired, handles like a pig on roller skates and knocks all over the place.

    I've bought these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    and I'm going to buy some new front wishbones and front arb bushes (not sure what size to get yet?).

    Some new springs and shocks will be ordered soon too.

    What other bushes do I need?
    Can someone please put up some links to the ones I need to get?

    Cheers

    Nope, it's more economical just to replace the whole upper control arm on the Vec-C

    With regards to the bushes it depends on the size of your anti roll bar. I know that the sport chassis Vectra's use the largest arb bushes but not sure about the signum. Easiest way would be to pop off the wheel and measure the bar

    Your anti roll bar bushed will be the largest size; also I don't think anyone sells just the bushes for the rear upper control arms.

    As for which other bushes you might need, ARB drop links (front and rear) and it wouldn't hurt to replace the track rod ends.
