"Silence is deafing"

Post by petecossie » Fri 25 Aug, 2017 23:12

Just got car back after getting various suspension bushes replaced at my indy. OMG as title suggests, the silence is deafening!! Didn't realise how noisy it had been till I got it back today.
Originally went in to get front lower arm bushes and rear outer axle carrier bushes sorted, alas the rear shocker top mounts were also found to be shot and were duly replaced aswell.
The ride is transformed, a definite positive result.

This is something I need to get done, after all, 16 year old bushings are certainly in need of replacement.

The only ones that have been replaced are the rear shock top mounts.
