What didn't you like about them? My wifes EB will need doing before the next rego check so I am deciding whether to go standard or nolathane.

BTW, what did the standard stuff cost you?

Cheers

I'm not aware of any vehicle including performance, high performance and race vehicles coming out of a factory with plastic bushs. I only see them on modded road cars, because they are pushed by the aftermarket industry. They are a 'godsend' for the aftermarket industry because they can sell them as a premium product, i.e. they can advertise them in a way that hits the modders hot spot, even though they are in fact cheaper to produce than rubber. Rubber is in fact the premium product.

personally I really like them. They've firmed up the car. They haven't helped the comfort level but.

In racing circles they put rose joints on, but they aren't suitable for the road even when booted, because of NVH. I guess nolathane is a little bit closer to a rose joint, but can be used on the road.
