Wishbone (control arm) bushes


Recommended Posts

Hello - I have just joined the club having recently bought a 2006 3.0R Outback.


I would appreciate some guidance .....


I need replacement wishbone bushes - I am struggling to find a UK stockist.


I intend to keep the current control arms (wishbones) and simply replace the front and rear bushes. I would like something polyurethane style to give a bit of extra longevity.


Can anyone help please ?

Personal preferences and all that, but I'm not a huge fan of polyurethane bushes.  I used to run them on my old '79 Mini Clubman.  They'd compress horribly without returning, especially on the tie-bars.  When I had my Defender I was going to run poly bushes on that and got put off by members of LRO and the LR Forum.  I'd say just ask your dealer for an OEM set of rubber bushes if they need replacing.


The chap who posted the info from E30zone does make some compelling points, the info is in the link to the LR forum here:




Totally your choice fella, but definitely food for thought there :)
