    Hi all, I went out playing in the rain last night and noticed a loud clunking when I was half way through the night.
    So I had a look underneath today and the bushes on the lower arms and arb links on the rear are in really bad condition. Is it worth getting poly bushes or just buy new lower arms with bushes in and new links?

    Just make sure you buy decent bushes and not ebay specials.Theres a thread on nutz at the moment showing a snapped wishbone with cheap polybushes fitted.Worth a read..

    I read that thread last night but it has mixed views, other people say they ran cheap bushes for over a year and had no issue
