Bush confusion

Post by Gillsfan » Sat Jul 21, 2018 11:17 am

Next stupid question. I bought from one of the could traders at curbs a few years ago some poly bushes for the front suspension on rat rod. I've finally got round to changing them and I seem to have the wrong bushes. I've got a bog of 6 yellow Polly bushes with 4 metal tubes, the tubes don't fit the bushes. Any idea where these bushes are for? Pictured below left to right old upper wishbone, new upper wishbone, old lower wishbone, new yellow Bush and metal tube. The old lower wish bone, yellow Bush and metal tube all have the same internal diameter.

I'll discovered last week that I only live 10 miles from superflex. I bought s set of upper wishbone bushes from them. I'll make another trip to get lower wishbone bushes .

Trouble is I'm not even sure the yellow ones are superflex. They where in an unmarked bag, I'm not even sure which of the club traders I bought them from.
