    Default Anyone fitted the powerflex bushes yet?

    I have just been searching but cannot find any mention of someone who has fitted them yet! I am looking to replace the ones in the banana arms on the back first, but am just wondering what they are like on the vectra, are they too harsh. Also how do they last compared to the factory fit ones???

    Thanks

    ive done the ARB bushes, much less body roll. will look into doing the rest also but not for sake of it only when necessary as it is alot of money. though if i found it abit hard id just soften the dampers abit

    I've also fitted the Powerflex ARB bushes all round. Felt like it had tightened it up, but then I changed rear upper control arms and fitted uprated springs and shocks at the same time so can't honestly tell you how much difference just the ARB bushes made. The combination of all of the above makes it drive like it's on rails though

    Hmmm, tempting, but no, the colour would clash.
