Bushing!
 
I haven't got a PT but I've been thinking and looking for quite some time.
A luxury Mercedes Benz estate/van with a 2.1 diesel engine easily capable of 40mpg and 185hp,reasonably cheap to buy.
Whats not to like?
BUT when I look at the MOT history of a PT for sale they are failing on front bushes on an almost yearly occurrence.
So I see that there is a poly alternative but the UK prices are ridiculous,this backed up when you see the prices in the USA but with $30 postage I can't see me getting them either.

Where are you all getting these from without being spanked?

The last bushes of this kind that I fitted I made myself from a nylon rolling pin bought from Macro for a fiver.No access to a lathe anymore alas. :(

Hi, just bought a full 'Master Bushing Kit' from Chrysler PT Cruiser parts and accessories from the PT Company for 154.50p delivered (less than 24 hour turn round time). they also do individual bush kits for all suspension, steering components.

I've just bought a full set of poly wishbone bushes from the ptcompany in dorset that was less than 50.. it's a diy job too with a few decent tools.

I've just had a look at that and saw the other two prices.:eek: you could be paying 25 more just for some bits of steel tube if you don't clean up your old one's.

Just came across this when YouTube suggested it to me. I'd not considered casting my own bushes. I'd go for MDF cut with a router though instead of cardboard. You can just jump through it to get a rough idea but its something I will be trying. Looks like 500g of the stuff is about 10.;)
