so im staring at strongflex, thinking these are way better priced than a certain purple company... however they dont do any Front ARB Droplink bushes.
Purple company do but... £23 per bush per side so £100 incl postage. thats a lot of money given the size of them. especially since i can get wishbone and inboard ARB PU for a total of £116

any alternatives?

for reference...

2x PFF1-603

Hi rich, if you look through the strongflex catalogue, I’m pretty sure they do the bushes in question but they are listed for another car, albeit I can’t remember right now.

As and when my stock control arms are worn , then I’ll look to do these along with the other bushes

Cheers Jamie

Hi Rich,
I had a quick look and couldn't see it, but probably worth an email to them as they have an office in the south near Chicester.

Cheers Jamie

Only other suggestion is if you can buy a block of PU and shape your own….

I think they are around 30mm diameter, and assuming the metal parts are in good condition, then you just need an 8mm hole down the centre
