Never heard of superpro but Paddocks in the UK sells 2 or 3 different types of poly bushings.

Well after going around the net on various Rover and non Rover forums, these guys seem to have the best reviews over all as longevity and ride quality on most of the car manufacturers. They seem a little more pricy but seem to compensate on quality.

I was going to redo the whole front end bushings and really wanted something better than what was on there so ... here I am.

If anyone as anything more to add feel free !

Thanks

Pat

I always heard the stock genuine bushings were the best.

Well for those of you interested in poly bushings I have just installed the Super Pro poly bushings and in the process removing the old poly that I believe to be the Paddock kind and have to admit that they are miles apart. The Super Pro have thicker steel sleeves and are press fitted in most places as the Paddock ones are two parts and and the sleeves are very thin. Also the fitting seems to have more tight tolerances on the Super Pro as the Paddock ones were a little too easy to put in for my taste. I have to admit that the compound in the Super Pro is more flexible as the Paddock orange ones so I believe that the ride should reflect that.

For now I have only changed the whole front end but will do the rear next week. I will drive the truck allot over the weekend and will report on the ride quality of those bad boys.

Thanks for listening.

Pat

be sure to post again after you have done some miles and/ or 4 wheeling with them. I blew though a set of Poly Bushes in 1500 miles but thought they were great when it was all installed. I'll be interested to see how they wear.
