I`d agree with that , my car is on standard supension and there`s been no loss of ride comfort or noticable increase in noise.The power flex bushes are money well spent for the rear beam items and sharpen up the back end when cornering no end.Don`t give up when fitting `em though as they can be tight to get in , just use plenty of grease. My advice would be fit the Powerflex polyeurythane bushes. See www.powerflex.co.uk Cost slightly more but won't degrade like rubber ones, which are a false economy especially as most of the cost of the job is labour. No loss of ride quality.

Classic symptoms Micky.my mk4 is especially noisy from the back end when going over small speed bumps or any sort of pot hole, thought it was down to the 18's but could it be these?
Thanks reflex might get these checked out. Ive got a mate whos a great mechanic and does most of my work for unbelievable prices, while getting these done are they anymore bushes anyone can recommend to change and is it worth getting the powerflex ones as ive heard a few comments about them giving a harsher ride? I am also going to be lowering my car next week 30mm on eibach springs!!Classic symptoms Micky.my mk4 is especially noisy from the back end when going over small speed bumps or any sort of pot hole, thought it was down to the 18's but could it be these?
Deal with Richard @ JBR Performance and I'm sure you will have everything in time. The Eibach ARB's come with their own PU bushes so you don't need the Powerflex ones.He's on holiday till next week so will be doing the work for me on the 27th - fitting 30mm eibach springs and front and rear eibach arb's. If i order the bushes will i get them before then, ie theres no waiting time for them is there? Because im fitting the eibach arb's does that means i wont need the powerflex ones? One last thing reflex, can you do me a list (if you have the time) of which ones i need for the whole car and wheres the best place to get them from?
Mine were fitted like this as per the instructions provided but still failed the MOT after 8 months use.Better to fit genuine parts to these IMO.just be careful with installation of the front wishbone (rear) bushes as the wishbone part is not handed (the same pressing is used on each side of the car). So the bushes fit a different way up on either side. The shouldered end of the bush sits in the radiused part of the wishbone. A diagram explains this in the instructions.

- the bush where the beam attaches is the main moving
