I want to install a complete polyurathane bush set in my e34 suspension but can't for the life of me remember were i saw them being sold.
Anyone know?

also i purchased a 16 piece suspension kit from Groton. I believe the bushings failed since the car felt great for a while. The roads in Fiji are really challenging for my e34's.

what else could were out so fast.

Thanks'
Byron

It seems tha FCP parts are hit or miss. What are your symptoms?

It is posible that you have bad strut mounts. Were they replaced as well. Depending on how long you had them in, FCP will replace anything that wore out prematurely. What sucks is that the labor is on you.

What about rims and tires, brake rotors??? Are they all in good shape. What symtoms are you experiancing?

thanks for reply. The rotors are perfectly worn to nothing and will be replaced soon. They have 250,000km on them. When I make Rt turn over a ridge the left front makes a clunking sound and can feel thru steering wheel. The ride seems a bit harsh on rough surface when going 10-30kph and it feels like it is from comes front suspension.
