Thinking about doing these aswell. along with the droplinks. Can I ask where you got the polybushes and brackets from?Make use of the opportunity to upgrade to polybushes and also buy new brackets -
ARB bushes was a surprisingly easy job, i didn't even need to jack up the car.
Was just thinking of replacing the rear ARB bushes on my tourer to cure some creaking. However the only polyurethane ones I could find online were for the saloon over here.
FYI - I found the creaking was the rear ARB droplinks, the bushes give a knocking rather than creaking sound...
Cheers mate, really helpful.Ok so I've noticed a slight knocking when going over speed-bumps and it's been getting worse for the last six months or so. Over the weekend I noticed a loud "twonking" noise coming from the right rear.
Had a quick look on here and the first thing to try seemed to be the ARB bushes. Found this write-up but noticed there were no pictures so though I'd add some. These are for a diesel tourer UK spec RHD. I've been lurking long enough so thought it would be useful to add some content.
:blush: Do you mean Polybush wins?Polybush > OEM rubber bush
Will last 4 times longer too.
Sorry I've already binned them. 22mm seems about right though.Was just thinking of replacing the rear ARB bushes on my tourer to cure some creaking. However the only polyurethane ones I could find online were for the saloon over here.
Jeff, to save me crawling under the car (and you haven't thrown old bush away), can you check size of the bush? From the markings in you pictures I'd ***ume its internal diameter is 22.2 at least. Thanks.
