Going to polybush the car but not sure whether to go for Polybush, Powerflex, Whiteline, etc...?

Any recommendations?

Much and such I would say, especially if you buy the road compound.

Powerflex have a good rep and are cheapest :)

I've got superpro on all arbs and the front wishbones. They were all fine, until I heard creak recently. But I'm but sure if its the bushes. Getting it looked at this week.

Super pro are really decent

I'm using powerflex and tbh are perfect

Creaking will still happen just have to re grease them up it use some GT85 silicone spray to quieten them down

They won't wear as quick as standard bushes which is a bonus and keeps everything tight

For mk4 the bushes you can change are

Steering rack
Anti roll bars
Wishbone bushes
Top mounts
Rear trailing arms
Tie bar bushes (which you can get the type to change the camber of the wheel, might just be super pro ones)
Dogbone bushes

I can get any of the bushes myself through my own website so sourcing isnt a problem


Polybush get a great write up so i'm thinking I might try them, doesnt seem many people have went for them though?

I've got whiteline bushes on the ARB as i've got an adjustable 24mm bar, dont think i'll do the dogbone mount tbh, cant really see the benefit there

Definitely be doing Steering rack, Wishbone bushes, Rear trailing arms & Tie bar bushes

Powerflex have a lifetime guarantee so if anything goes wrong they will replace them. Which they did when one of mine started to wear after just a year of use! Fine now though.

I would go a mix between Powerflex and Superpro.

Both are very good and Powerflex are cheaper on some items and likewise with Superpro.

We keep a wide range of Powerflex on the shelf as they are our biggest bush seller, we have some Superpro on the shelf.

If you ever see them cheaper elsewhere just let us know!
