I've had the R since new. Awesome Forum, I have adopted many of the great suggestions. I have just had to replace a lower control arm suspension bush. I would like to check and upgrade other steering/suspension/engine mount bushings. To do them all is probably going to be overkill? Anybody have suggested ones for improvement or bushes which are often needed at 110,000km/70,000 miles? I have had the upper engine mount replaced.

Re: Suspension bushing replacement (PhilUp)

Is the poly bushing lower tranny mount that much better than the "stock" one they also sell?

not better .... only harder, more ridged and stiffer ....
to most owners it would transfer too much vibrations so Volvo choosed a softer more fragile rubber bushing
