Been looking at upgrading the front console bushes but if you have done this upgrade you will know there is a chance of the bolts stripping or snapping so as I looked into it more I see people have filled the with polyurethane filler etc

I did this recently, and yes the bolts did snap - ended up getting a replacement subframe off ebay !!!

 

I did fit new bushes, powerflex, which dont come in the housing, so that was another nigtmare, pressing them into the housings.

 

But when all was done, loads of new bolts, upgraded the front ARB at the same time, new ball joints etc it does drive really nice.
