Rear Trailing Arms - Poly bush or rubber bush ?

I'm pretty certain the rhs rear, upper trailing arm, forward bush is failing. Its wallowing and when I pull away promptly, eg sprinting, she squats on that side. She's going in the garage, on a lift this Friday to check but if it is , do i poly bush them or replace with the rubber (metallistic ?) ty...

Newest Newbie

Good luck and welcome. I've had my 5a for a few years now and probably the most enjoyable / rewarding car I 've ever owned.

Maroon ? Might be Highland Purple, appropriate !

Se5a Front bumper brackets.

Stephen, I ended up making afresh due to rust and being bent. They're so old and normally suffered a bit of abuse, but you might be lucky

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

I fitted a decent wide band sensor and electronic gauge. Not cheap, but really pleased. Its permanently fitted and tells me constantly lean / rich under power etc.

I had tried narrow band in each exhaust bank and twin gauges but a complete waste of time.

so the wilwoods will be a bolt on solution. I have those as well. No brackets required as the holes are in the right position. The mondeo's will be for vented disks and so if you want them you'l need disks and mounting brackets. Perfectly achievable, just not a bolt on

generally no unless you are doing a vented disc conversion for the front or a conversion for the rear, in which case its making whatever you can get hold of to fit through adaptors etc.

more importantly for the conversion is the disk you are going to fit.

Yes. The bumper has taken quite a knock, dented in several places so hopefully they’ve got lots of damage. A bloke said he saw a silver car speed off but no plate etc.
