3000me wishbone bushes
« on: August 02, 2017, 16:44:32 »
Hi,
   looking for advice on obtaining wishbone bushings either origin or replacements. Have tried polybush but they don't have anything suitable in their range. This is for chassis off resto on chassis 171. Got almost all other wearing parts new but these bushes are proving to be illusive. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
   Two new bushes came with car, only need another 14!

Brian has none, I went to see him a couple of weeks ago, his stock of ME parts has dwindled I'm afraid.

Hello Mark & Gerry,
Interested to know how the 3000ME performs with poly bushes, as the engineering appears to be somewhat different. On the originals, there is a metal sleeve around the bush, and both the inner and outer sleeves are bonded to the rubber. The polybush has no outer bush, and no bonding. This could result in more radial give, and much less longitudinal constraint, than with the original bush. This could affect wheel alignment.

On the 3000ME the car's handling is heavily influenced by rear wheel alignment. Have you noticed any changes?

Best wishes for 2018

John
