    Default I've dropped a little Borrock !

    I bought some front & rear Powerflex ARB bushes from Neo Brothers and have got the wrong ones for the front !
    Back ones are correct and fitted perfectly but when the fronts were "fitted", they "didn't !"

    Here we go again .... another £26 !

    Oops, how'd you manage that Phil?

    Should be the larger ones on the front of your car unless Vx scrimped on the anti roll bar.

    Ian, just had a long chat with Nicholas at Neo Bro's and he says that the car is on a spec changeover by Saab.
    They don't have the bushes for my car (yet) but will have in a few days time when they bring out all the new Powerflex fitments.

    The bushes i had are loose in the bracket when fitted and physically the wrong shape. They have a raised piece on the bush top and raised bumps on either side (presume these are to stop them slipping from the bracket), the originals don't have these, the lower half of the bush clips into the steel bracket and are taller than the powerflex variant.

    The stage 5 power upgrade sounds tempting ! £3700+ vat though ... ouch !

    The front ARB bushes will be put up for sale over the weekend.
