Britpart Polyurathane Bush Kit

Looking to replace most of the bushings on my D90, but I don't want to spend too much - has anyone used these: DC7009 | Britpart Yellow Polyurethane Bush Kit - Defender to 93 chassis number KA930455 - Paddock Spares

Don't spend much, expect crap handling






I'd use genuine bushes, they're not that expensive. Even Bearmach ones don't tend to last /that/ long and they're supposed to be quality items.

In terms of polyurethane stuff, the Bearmach kits are definitely the best option in my experience. Where the Britpart stuff is two halves of the bushing with a sleeve, all of the BM stuff is a solid one piece bushing with a sleeve you press in. They're not nearly as easy to install, but are a much better design and I would expect significantly more life out of them.

If you're interested, I have a kit on the shelf. I'll need to double-check that it isn't for the later trucks with wide radius arms, though.

Ive sold a few sets to different people and haven't heard any complaints. Cant beat them for the money, but surely not as good as genuine.

I have the Polybush set from YRM and have been very happy with them.

What's wrong with the actual "Polybush" brand for these kits? That's what I've used the red kits on all my trucks so far with no issues:
Defender 90 and 110 1994-end 2001 - Land Rover - Polybush

They make red/yellow/orange kits and I *think* Lucky8, AB, etc should all carry them.

The Australians say the Superpro bushes are the best. Soft and last the longest. They are usually the people to best evaluate durability of stuff like this as they will spend weeks on rough roads at high speeds.

This isn't a job that you want to do again next year. General rule: if it moves or seals, don't use Britpart.

Mostly they just talk too much. But a few of them know something.

I've got the black version of this kit. Had it on for about 3 months and so far so good. Ran some rougher roadsin Michigan's UP and they were fine.
