stockists of polyurethane bushes in Durban

Post by Dhir-DKR » Fri Jan 08, 2016 4:28 pm

Howzit guys, so my dog mount bush is stuffed, and I would like to go the polyurethane route.

Two questions:
1. Who stocks them in durban
2. Can the bush be pressed in without the use or a 'press' machine?

Thanks gents.

Also in need of this, I've asked Ashley, but he says they dont stock it.

Did you manage to find a supplier in Durban ?

I've managed to contact them, but just wondering which bushes are a must to replace.
I know control arms and dogbone mount for sure, but which others?
Have you used them before and how are the quality of their products.
Is the material they use very Hard ?
How did it transform the ride on your car after replacing ?

Thanks :wink:

Personally have not used them, but have called for quotes a few times.

Found the details on the forum. Highly recommended and reasonable prices.

Poly has various stiffnesses, tell those guys what you want and what it's for and they will do the rest.

Send them the mountings you need refurbished, so just like OEM just better.

This will be very complicated given that I'm in Durban.
I may just have to get my sister in the uk to get me a Powerflex kit and bring it down for me when she comes later in the year.

Speak to Chris Fernandez from Retrofitters as well. Think he was doing Powerflex as well. If not him, speak to Rob from Dubcorp.

Been advised against going full poly on suspension for an everyday car, due to excessive vibration and noise in the cabin.
I think I'm only going to upgrade the dogbone mount bushes, if I can find them.
