really struggling with these damn things. i cannot for the life of me get the rear bushes in and done up in the brackets. they seem too big. i have had the car jacked up on the brackets and the weight of the car wont even compress them enough to put the bolts in.


has anyone got any ideas on how to best fit these?

I found them a tight fit but with loosening both bolts I could get them in and tighten it up. Are the front and rear bushes the same?

finally got them in. they are different bushes, the outer (front) ones come with new clamps.

i had to cut a slot into the rear bush clamp so when i jacked it up the stud would go through. was still a bit of a pig, but its all done up ok and nothing has fallen off.
