Correct, but you should be able to get Mugen or Spoon bushes for that, https://www.hendyeshop.co.uk/rear-lo...0n0-7619-p.asp
Though I think I went with Powerflex purples for them in the end.


Some people have got (~£120 each I think ? ) replacement pattern front lower arms from www.importcarparts.co.uk - so might be worth giving them a call to see if they can get the rear lower arms.

Fergal get on the blower to si at hendy for some spoon bushes if you want to stay more OEM, I personally prefer going through si as he's awesome to deal with, also if your doing the job yourself and you need to borrow a press then you can use mine no probs

Thanks much appreciated. I've got a local Indy having a look in the week. See what happens.
