Do you mean, " Nolathane "????
I wouldn't use them, they are crap. The Polyurethane they use turns to a powder in a very short time.
I use SuperPro bushes from Fulcrum Suspension. I think Supercheap sell them too.

thanks but there in now, just need to know if the arms should line up or if they will be slightly out of alignment as bushes have 1-2 mm difference in overhang. can't remember when took others out. took measurements and had 7.5mm overhang but now have 6mm when changed and they don't line up, not sure if this is going to cause a problem?
