Hello all. I'm throwing on a set of Bilsteins on a 850R and thinking a set of polyurethane bushings would complement them and just wanted to get opinions from anyone who may have installed aftermarket bushings. Is it worth it? I figure it would be since the shocks and struts are being replaced and you're in there anyway. And at this age I'm guessing the factory bushings are sacked out.

Are you talking about the upper spring seats or control arm bushings?

Re: suspension (854T5)

I took a closer look at Powerflex and they describe the set as "front wishbone lower bushings" set of 4. I've looked at performance suspension and superflex but it appears they don't offer a set for the 850. Maybe the Bilsteins alone will make enough of a difference. It's not a daily driver so it's not like I need to get it to "track spec"! I just thought it would be a nice addition.
