    Default Poly bushing kits

    Gentlemen,
    Once again we are onto a new polyurethane bushing range. These will be supplied in yellow for all round performance. Personally I would like to discontinue all of our ploy bushing range. In 22 years of selling them -there
    isn't a manufacture's set we haven't pounded, and the best results we have achieved is only half the life of Genuine bushings. I realize they are DIY friendly and have this performance hype, so we will continue to make them available. Thursday's sales mtg will cover our new range in detail with new part numbers. Thanks,m

    yes I believe that they are. I have neither the skill nor the experience to advise others but I can say that I have installed both the 'poly' and the original and I would prefer to repeat the poly process 3 times in the course of the ownership of my vehicle than to go through another at home installation of the original. I simply will not put the kind of travel on this thing to wear these out. Others may and still others may simply prefer to stick with original equipment. All good choices in my book.

    FWIW these are greasable. The bolt is drilled through its length and across in the middle, and tapped with a grease fitting. The inner sleeve is similarly tapped. I am not sure what this grease does that was not required in the original 'greasless' design but thought I should mention it.

    I kind of wish you wouldn't sell poly either. I installed the orange ones you were selling back around 04 (deflex I think) and I really hate them. They were billed as the same softness as rubber, but they just aren't - they ride too hard and transmit too much vibration.

    I think Markl is right, there just is no "perfect" poly bush that has all the best characteristics of rubber and the installation ease of poly.

    Default 88 poly frame bushing inquiry

    Do you offer front frame poly bushings sold individually for the 88, I saw them on the site for a 109 but I think they are a different size?

    I installed regular rubber bushings in my springs and the rear of the chassis. I can't get the front ones in by any method of pressing or pulling. I've already ruined 3 trying. I've snapped 1/2 grade 8 bolts trying. After having the frame galvanized I think the holes warped a bit. I did try to grind/sand the excess zinc restricting the diameter.

    Ser.III 109 front chassis bushings are larger. I now have a source for individual poly bushings. However if you have an alignment issue the bushings will not last. Front 88 poly bushes are 8.90 ea. m

    Default Super Pro ploy bushing kits

    In response to requests for better ploy bushings we are now offering what the pro racers use. There is just no in between. All the other ploy bushing kits we have tested and sold are less expensive than Genuine LR and do not last or perform as well. To get the quality (or to exceed) Genuine we are now offering
    Super Pro of Australia Polyurethane bushing kits for Dsco I and II, RRC, and Defender.
    These are the best we have experienced. Built for off road and rally racing they will give poly fans the performance they are after.
    Complete vehicle kits start at $300.00 and are not DiY friendly.
    Feature 3 year / 60,000 km warranty. m
