Guide to wishbone bushes


Recommended Posts

Andy (Sycho)

I’ve got some play in one of my front wishbones (metalastic bushes) so I’m wanting to upgrade the bushes.

I was going to go the nylon route reading this guide, but am I right in thinking that’s still the way to go? Or have the powerflex ones come on a lot since this guide was written?

The car is mostly track use but is used on the road as well, are nylon still the best option?

I had nylon on my S2000 and it drove fine. Not too harsh.

I changed to nylon supplied and fitted by Playskool earlier this year due to worn metalastics.

Can honestly say I didnt really notice a difference in harshness of the ride but handling definitely felt more responsive on track.
