    Steve(spoons) looked into it and there isn't any available. A shame as I was looking for them as well. Only other option is to get them custom made I think

    If you want to start looking at Saab 9-3 and 9-5 they are all Vectra based and might be suitable till the factory is back up and running?

    I'm tempted to spray some silicon on the bushes as I've read this helps to protect them, not sure if that's true?

    There aren't any uprated bushes for the 9-3 Sports Saloon, which is the model that's based on the same platform as the Vec-C. There are plenty for the 9-5 (based on a Vectra-B) and the older 9-3 (based on the Cavalier/Calibra).

    I'm still talking to PowerFlex... should have more news at the end of this month.

    The project was delayed due to the catastrophic fire at PowerFlex late last year. They have just got back on their feet again from that
