    Front lower control arm bushes.

    Looking for replacements for the lower arm bushings. Seem to be different sizes? Just looking for replacements. Or even upgraded ones if it's not too much more.

    Thanks

    I had the same dilemma recently. 35 mm or 31.6 mm options right?

    I measured the OD of the sleeve of my arms at 34 and a bit mm, so I ordered 35 mm. Powerflexstore will let you buy both if you're not sure and return the one it isn't.

    Yeah although I've seen 40 point something diameters as well.
    I was looking on driftworks for them and saw they supply bushes that don't require the sleeve pressing out. Too late of course but I'll try those guys you mentioned.

    I haven't come across 40 mm. But the sleeve is about 1.5 mm thick so that could push it close to 40.

    I had DWs in the arms on my last car, without the sleeves. I think we made a mistake, mostly because DW now say don't remove the sleeve

    Unless of course they've changed since 5 or so years ago. Regardless, the DW bushes are ass dude. Spend a few quid more.

    Yeah I've pressed the sleeves out now anyway so looking at the hardrace ones. Awaiting advice from whiteline seeing as they have a 20% discount on.
