    Default Anti-Roll Bar Bushes

    Well lads, went to change the bushes today, i measured the bar, it was 24 mm the same as the womans vectra when i did them on that few months ago, so i ordered the same bushes. I notices there was somthing up when i had the bolts out the metal bracket holding in the bush would not simply pop off, i had to prise it and beat it with a chisel and hammer and eventually got it off to find the bush is completely different, its like hard plastic with just rubber in the middle and it split in 2 halves, theres also 2 little lugs on the bush that clip into 2 holes in the bracket... ive never seen bushes like this before and the auto factors hasnt got them listed either. Will i just have to go to main dealers or does anyone know why these are different to the normal types?

    That sounds like VXR bushes to me? Have you got uprated running gear such as IDS shocks and sport? My cdti has, and as such comes with VXR anti roll bars. What you write above sounds identical? if you don't want VX two piece bushes, powerflex do them for about £40. Have a look on eBay under powerflex two piece arb bushes.

    They tend to be fitted to the facelift ones. 2 piece bushes are quite common on them. I changed mine for powerflex ones a couple months back, but you can get the genuine ones from VX for just a few pound

    ****in cu*ts in main stealer, ended up being €37 as the bushes came in 4 pieces and was counted as 4 parts not 2
    if i had to know that i would of got powerflex ones, they were only €43!

    Thats what i should of done!! There some pain to do compared to normal bushes

    And now that i have done them it still hasnt cured the problem i checked everything in the front and all was gone is a wishbone and droplink but after doing them i could still hear a little rattle when on rough ground or going up on a speed ramp and can feel it through the steering wheel, so the only thing i thought it might be was the bushes, but there changed now and its still there!!
