    Hi all! My garage gave my car the once over for me and said it was all good, just one thing is one of the anti roll bar bushes is a bit worn. Obviously I am going to have it sorted, I just wondered what the best bushes out there are, should I just let my garage fit whatever or is it worth getting some performance ones??? It's a 7th Generation diesel.

    Thanks in advance xxxx

    These Meyle HD ones are suppose to be good (OEM I believe) quality.



    That particular ebay listing is a full set of droplinks and bushes but I'm sure the same seller would do just the bushes on their own.

    Front or rear bushes? If rear, then tourers might have different types to saloons. I know from experience that a rear one being worn on a tourer is hardly anything to worry about... I been listening to mine clonk on rough roads for years!

    I would avoid 'performance' bushes, as the ride and noise levels can suffer. I can definitely recommend that eBay seller suggested above by SpeedyGee.

    Yes the rear bushes are different between the tourers and saloons.

    They are different as I had them done on mine, not a big job at all. I am pretty sure my local garage fitted after market ones but I know it was an easy job, I just couldn't be bothered at the time to do it myself. If I remember I paid £50 for them to be fitted including the parts. So basically an hours labour but I don't think it took anywhere near an hour to do. LOL

    It's the rear bushes. Spent ages looking at the poly ones online but have plumped for a pair of original honda ones from coxs!

    If the front bushings are gone in a diesel, now I will not do the job myself as I do not have a lift, but does the subframe have to drop because of the mounting bolts for the bushings. It looks like a big job for a 10 er mounting.

    I'd imagine so as the bolts are on the top.
