Just a thought though, who wants to scrabble under the car regreasing the rear ones ever few thousand miles?

Can you honestly say they will outlast the OE stuff? I mean look how easy it is to damage the rear beam bearings by rubbing up a kerb, its not something reserved for high mileage cars belive me.

The earliest BXs used to run something similar, and they were nigh on a replace on service item. Also if the bearings fail, is it guranteed that the old bearings can be removed without damaging the housings?

All valid points i think, I want to look before I leap on this.

I'm sorry but there is no hard evidence there that would make me think otherwise, even towards the end of that thread someone suggests changing the bearings frequently, Once a year?
There is no indication as to how easy this operation is, its an outdated way of doing things if I'm honest, as I said before, citroen tried it and reverted back to bushes.4
Horses for courses chaps, better than to go into this blind.

I think its going to be a case of empirical evidence being gathered over the next year or so. Maybe in a year or two you can make a fully informed judgement.

You can grease them without jacking up the car; put the wheel on full lock and reach under there.

Yes.

I wouldn't say they are that delicate. Although unless you let your Mrs drive your car, kerbs shouldn't be a problem. Or that the case for me anyway Laugh

Depends on the competency of the person doing it.

If your afraid of scrabbling around under your car I wouldn't bother No

From reviewing mine I wouldn't say this is neccessary - mine are as tight as they were when first fitted to the car.

If i'm honest I don't care what you think - if a problem develops through something i've sold I will remedy it - and people on here know that hence my reputation.

I don't see the need to go looking for trouble - and if trouble comes up i'll deal with it.

Relax - they will be fine

Cool

Thanks pal Wink

Even though half of your goodies are still under my bed Whistle

BTW, If you can find out what size your ball joints are [16/18mm], I may have a pair of bones I could fit your bushes too. These bones are complete with BJ's of the 18mm variety.

Had mine MOT'd last month & the tester was well impressed that there was zero play in the bushes!! ie he could not move the wheel at all!!
If your a sceptic and dont like the idea, simple dont buy them, im sure you will have fun with your rubber bushes.
Ive had mine on for a good 6 months and they are still like new.
I cant fault them!

Cool
