I have a TF rear set up Clive...

Will have a look at the poly bushes when they arrive and see if they fit the TF if that helps?

There is a delphi part number in the photo above.
I believe the MGR number is QJB100120

How to strip the other end..

There is a big side and a little side..

On the big side is a ring which has to be removed (smashed up)



Smash it up totally



Then pull the ring off and tap the rest out from the small side



Then clean up using wire brush in bench grinder





Ready for paint

Yes Peter the link you provided should include the bush required for the TF. Labelled 38G above

Looking on the Rimmer Bros site they show item one (adjustable lower arm) as no longer available and recommend you to purchase a non adjustable part, part two?

The bushes arrived today...

The number on the Powerflex box is right.... But the bushes that arrived are for the lower arm.. 4x bushes and 2x sleeves... Not the bushes for the control arm..not amused..

It would appear the number of the item on the DCPerformance web site is incorrect... IE PFR42-220 is lower arm bushes..

Have e mailed them to see what is going on..

Would advise no one else order until they sort the numbers out

I reckon the PFR42-220 is the lower arm...

And no one makes poly bushes for the 2 joints that I have now destroyed..

Not looking good... And wasted £40 on bushes I don't need...


Should of stayed in bed today
