Right, been a few weeks but finally got all my Bushes fitted and painted the GTI Front anti roll bar.
Once again sorry as i didnt get photos of everything but i will put up what i did photo.
So as you can see i only got the rear beam bushes and the eye bolt roll bar bushes in the Road series. All other bushes are black series.
Couple photos of the roll bar fitted
Having access to a press at work meant the old bushes came out pretty easy and the same for installing the powerflex ones. But fitting the arms was abit of a ball ache as you have to position the arm in the subframe with little shims and washers that they supply which was not a one man job. also fitting the little anti roll bar stabilizers to the lower arms i had to shave just a slight amount of the flat part of the bush away as with 2 of us trying to compress the little bush we could not get the thread to come through enough to get the nut started. but apart from that plain sailing
So after fitting everything i took it out for a drive bearing in mind the ride height is higher at the front now due too the arm bushes being very stiff, and the tracking needs to be done. But them things aside it drives amazing, Car is alot more pointy now and have reduced alot of body roll. i stopped a few little clicks and knocks that i had before hand, the car also feels very stable and planted at higher speeds now, and i would even go as far as saying it is smoother on the road! i cannot notice any extra vibration or noise from the black series dog bone bush. and cannot even think of any negative things to say about driving on the road with black series. Feels great
Hopefully i will be able to help some people with the 22mm eye bolt bushes as i couldn't find any information on them either.
So i ordered the MK2 Golf 22mm Eibach Anti Roll Bar Eye Bolt Bushes. Which are the purple bushes you can see in the second photo in this post. this bush fits the GTI anti roll bar perfectly and also fits in the eye bolts. i had to message Powerflex to find this out. DONT order 20mm bushes thinking you might be able to force them over the roll bar because from first hand experience i have found out that wont work.
So now lets just hope the missus gets us a Go Pro for Christmas so i can some in car videos down some nice roads and on track
Probably nexts things to do on my list is either some BC Coils or a Rollcage. car handles pretty well at the moment so may go for the cage first.
