Polyurethane Bushes

http://www.partsforsaabs.com/default...=2_314_130_177

What do we think of these?

They look good but how hard are they to fit. I have changed wishebones on cars etc.. but it is only worth doing when you have to take them apart and replace an arm etc...

A range of PowerFlex Polyurethane suspension & steering bushes for the Saab 9-5 1998 onwards. POWERFLEX bushes improve your cars' road holding and chassis performance by controlling the amount of unwanted flex in the suspension. This means your suspension is doing what it is supposed to. It means your tyres have greater contact with the road at all times therefore improving safety and performance. Correctly formulated polyurethane is as good if not better at noise, vibration and harshness suppression when compared to rubber. As an added bonus Powerflex polyurethane bushes will generally outlast standard rubber bushes by a factor of 10!.

Total *****! I snapped one of the special bolts that holds the wishbone to the car and it cost me $800 to get it removed and fixed. If you don't snapped the bolts, it's a bit of a pain, but not too bad. I was expecting the ride to be harder and sharper, but it's about the same as stock IMO, but these bushes don't go bad.

I thought that the poly bushes were only available for the 2001-older cars?

Had them done 3 weeks ago on my 04 estate (wagon) - no discernible change in handling replacement for a failing part as Raven18940 said. Cost fitted 240 (independent) oh $358 approx.
