I recently ordered the bushings. I do have some questions left and probably these questions are also of interest for the members of this forum.
My mechanic has little experience with it and only once he put the bushings in place. He told me that it was impossible to remove the small originial rubber bushings from the wheel arm. So he only changed the big bushings with the polyurethane ones. What is your advice to remove the small rubber bushings?
My mechanic says the polyurethane bushings do not handle speed bumps very well and because these are a lot in my country, his experience is that the bushings crumble over time. Or has this to do that in that specific case only the big bushings were replaced and the small rubber bushings were left in place so this may give a difference in stiffness and this then gives a very specific focal peak load on the polyurethane material?
The reason that these kind of bushings in general are made out of rubber is that the rubber material absorbs shocks, so it gives an convenier ride in the car. What is your opinion about this?
Thanks in advance for your answers. I appreciate it.
