Hi mate

I tryed chasing up a set of bushes but with no luck. I was concerned buying from American as sometimes american 240z and 260z dates dont quiet line up with Aus cars. I didnt search everwhere but places like, Whiteline, Pedders and Nolathane didnt have a kit. Superpro has individual bushes but wouldnt put a kit together for a discounted price!!

 

So I risked it and purchased from Prothane in America and cannot compliment enough. Every single bush fitted no issue at all!!!

Ok so how do you find the superpro bushes?how do they last?do they squeek after the lube goes dry or washes out?do the metal bits with them rust quickly? I have had the red urathane bushes and did find them harsh in my 300zx years ago.i will go and search now but does superpro offer the full set and where from?

When I contacted superpro they only sold individual bushes and that can be very $$$$$$$

There was a seller on ebay who sells a superpro kit front and rear separate but for around $240 for fronts and $130 for rears it is a bit expensive. The rear kit didnt list control arm bushes or sway bar link bushes

Prothane looks to be the most practical way to go for simplicity.i would have thought the z car sources in vic would stock some line of bushes....not enough demand?

hey gav if you get a couple of sets while your in the us,ill defiantly get one set off you when your back if your able to?but for the hassle it may just be easier to go ebay...let me know, i can give you money up front if you can strike a good deal.

I think warren from allzparts has some kits.

 

I bought mine from amazon US, was cheaper than ebay for the same kit at that time.

 

I paid $163US per kit and the dollar was around 80c exchange. I used a freight forwarder that had a deal going at the time so shipping 2 sets worked out cheap.

 

Haven't fitted them yet so cant comment on quality
