Part numbers or half decent upgrades???
Although saying that the originals are still ok for 16yrs and 125k
Just thought seen as the subframes in peices it'd be worth a freshen up Wink

I just got the originals from Pug, they're pretty solid as they are and seem to last well as you say.

The new ones were definitely stiffer than the old ones, and for a few quid you might as well while you're there.

As above but if the subframe is off for any reason definitely worth doing.
They don't wear but they do become stiffer and their ability to soak up road vibration/noise gets reduced.
A new set will freshen any 6 on oem bushes. They help roll the car back a few years in terms of ride refinement.

These are an arse to change without dropping the subframe arent they?
Something to do with the clamps on the arb?

Nope easy. I did them on my old XS and with the wheels off, it took me about 5 minutes a side.

The subframe is off as I've had someone weld me it up (not seam welded but enough to stiffen it up )

So all if off and wanna freshen her... I've heard of uprated arb's but prov outa my price range now


Speaking of which I have asked a very reputable source but does anyone have any subframe bolts going??


Just gotta work out what colour I'm gonna paint the subframe now...

Does welding the seams up do much?
