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 (LOTR)

Lower transmission mount bushings are most likely shot. IPD sells a whole unit with poly bushings.

Re: Suspension bushing replacement (PhilUp)

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